Since July 1, 2018, KPBSD educators have been working without a contract. Despite our efforts to bargain in good faith with the district, they have been unwilling to provide us with an offer that would address some of the most pressing issues we face; salary, health insurance, and contract duration. The district has received over $2 million in additional funds from the State of Alaska for next fiscal year, and stands to receive even more the following year. Even with this additional money, the district has yet to provide any initial financial offers to our bargaining teams.
KPEA Initial proposal to the District
Out of 77 sections of the contract, KPEA Opened 13 sections and has already reached agreement with the District on 3 of those 13 sections involving instructional leaves and use of sick leave for bereavement.
We are proposing a 3 year contract.
