Avon Grove School District Collective Bargaining Agreement 2016
“The Board of Directors is very pleased to conclude a long-term agreement with the Teachers` Association,” Wolff said. “This agreement benefits the district, the board of directors, the Avon Grove community and the association`s teachers. The Board of Directors has achieved several objectives in this contract, which will allow the Board of Directors and the administration to plan financially for the next five years to achieve our long-term organizational objectives. The current contact between the school district and its teachers was approved in December 2014, nearly six months after Demener`s existence. School officials spoke positively of a longer-term contract. “It is very affirmative to see the commitment made by both parties to a contract that benefits our students, our staff and our district,” said Mr. Marchese. “I am grateful to all those who have committed to their commitment to Avon Grove.” In addition, the highest salary of teachers, stage 15 with a master plus 60 credits, will not be increased during the last four years of the agreement. The new teacher`s contract, which will come into effect from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2022, was adopted by the school committee by 8 votes to 0. The current collective agreement expires on June 30, 2017. Superintendent Dr.M. Christopher Marchese thanked school officials and the Avon Grove Education Association`s management team for their efforts in concluding an “early booking contract” that benefits the various stakeholders in the district. The contract provides for the introduction of a highly deductible health plan as the only option for medical and prescription prescriptions. This plan replaces the existing three-step health plan options available under the existing agreement.
The proposed highly deductible plan should provide the county with long-term savings. In a school district press release, the teacher contact was described as a “regionally competitive compensation and performance plan, with annual cost increases well below the five-year average of The Basic Index 1.” At a meeting on December 15, the Avon Grove School Board approved a new five-year collective agreement with the Avon Grove Education Association. The school`s president, Bonnie Wolff, thanked the Avon Grove Education Association for working with the county on the “early booking contract.” Wolff said she felt the negotiations were very collegial between the two sides.
