2021-2023 Administrative Negotiated Agreement - Posted on the website utilizing the BoardDocs link is the draft 2021-2023 Administrative Negotiated Agreement. Mr. Rodakowski moved to approve the 2021-2023 Administrative Negotiated Agreement, as presented, which includes the mutually agreed 1% paid by the District on the base plus lanes and service movement in 2021-2022 and 1% paid by the District on the base plus lanes and service movement in 2022-2023. Chair Seaks seconded the motion. Discussion: President Seaks explained the administrative negotiations started the same time as the teacher negotiations. A tentative agreement was reached with the administrative negotiators.
President Seaks recommended moving forward, the Board member negotiators need to be current on the financial status of the District. This had not been done until after the administrative negotiations were completed and during the ongoing teacher negotiations. President Seaks said that after meeting with the business manager, the Board members have a better understanding of the costs associated with the administrator steps and lanes which is different than the teacher steps and lanes. The business manager also provided guidance on the financial implications for the District. If the Board should vote to deny the agreement, the Board representatives could then reopen negotiations with the Administrative Council.
A roll call vote was taken on the motion: ayes-0; nays-5 (Orton, Schwartz, Wilkie, Rodakowski, Seaks); absent-0. The motion failed.
Adjournment - At 1:06 p.m., President Seaks declared the meeting adjourned.
