Collaborative Bargaining Team

The Collaborative Bargaining Team (CBT) is a representative group from all school staff sectors.  It includes Board members, leaders, teachers, bus drivers, cooks, para-professionals and custodians.  Using an Interest Based Bargaining (IBB) process the team addresses policies that guide working conditions and compensation. A consensus model for decisions is used to ensure that any individual voice is as strong as the majority.  The CBT uses the process to identify the most pressing issues and seek the best possible solution for that issue.  A bus driver's issue is as important as a Board member's issue.  As such the problem solving process of IBB seeks to increase collaboration and ownership of the district solutions by all staff for all staff.  The Board develops a budget in the Spring that is then allocated in the Winter based on actual revenues.  The allocation strategy is recommended to the Board by CBT after validation by all staff.

Interest Based Bargaining Orientation Friday August 27th, 2021 8-12 p.m.

David will work with Dennis, Kate, and Will to work through the orientation.  All members are encouraged to attend; all new members are required to attend.  We all need the reminders.  It is going to happen a few weeks after school’s start to see if that allows us to better capture new members, rather than how it was previously done before the start of school.
