KPEA Local Election Endorsements 2017

Our local election day is rapidly approaching. Early voting begins today at the Borough building and your City Hall. Please be sure to vote, this is a very important election!

We are losing Mike Navarre who was an education friendly Mayor. Some candidates are much more friendly than other to our schools and open to funding to the cap while others would like to balance the budget by cutting school funding. KPEA has endorsed the following:

Linda Farnsworth-Hutchings Borough Mayor
Dan Castimore Borough Assembly District 1
Hal Smalley Borough Assembly District 2
Leslie Morton Borough Assembly District 5

These endorsements were made based on questionnaires each candidate filled out, their campaign literature, and public statements they have made. The PACE committee believes these candidates will support public education on the peninsula. Whoever you vote for please do not forget to vote.

Welcome Back!

President’s Greeting:

            Welcome back! I love this time of year when it starts to cool off, especially in the evening and I start trying to organize all those thoughts I’ve had all summer long about what would make my classroom even better. The fireweed is done blooming and we are back to work.


September Bargaining Update

Bargaining Update:

Today the Associations have reached a final tentative agreement with the District.  The District suggested we use the arbitrator’s recommendation as written which gave KPEA members $750 for last year and KPESA nothing. KPEA offered to split the $750 with support staff at which point the district agreed to giving all employees the cash bonus in exchange for moving a date up that will effect new hires. The $750 is off the schedule but is TRSable.
