“This was really a great process to work through,” said Stu Karschner, the PSEA representative assisting the CAEA. “Once again each side listened to the other respectfully and we discussed the issues important to each party and each accomplished what we wanted while acceding a little to the other side.” “Contract negotiations were very professional and they were always productive.
I think both parties are going to be very happy with the outcomes from this agreement, which helps everyone with their commitment to the success of every student in the district,” said Karschner.
