WCS Board Approves Collective Bargaining Agreement

Warsaw School Board approved the collective bargaining agreement between Warsaw Community Education Association and Warsaw Community Schools unanimously Tuesday, with one abstention. The one-year agreement is for July 1 of 2014, through June 30 of 2015, and is limited to wage, wage-related benefits and salary. The contract is also the same contract approved last year with a small difference in the compensation model, according to Superintendent Dr. David Hoffert. According to the agreement, eligible WCS teachers may earn up to eight units if rated “effective” or “highly effective” on the WCS RISE evaluation model. According to Hoffert, the earnings will determine raises. Teachers receiving an “ineffective” or “needs improvement” rating are not eligible to earn units.
