    After almost a year and a half of negotiations, ERTA and the District reached final agreement on a contract covering July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2021.  Currently, a draft version of the contract wording is being reviewed by both sides for approval before printing.  In the meanwhile ERTA has sent each member a copy of the signed Memorandum of Agreement which delineates all the changes that have been agreed upon.  Keep the MOA with your previous contract until the new one is printed and distributed.
    The agreement on School Sessions was approved by a vote of ERTA members on Thursday, April 4, 2019.  Full details of the plan and the vote are available in the Members Only section.  Use the  MEMBER LOGIN button to access the post.

    This school year's first Liaison meeting, between the Superintendent and ERTA,  was held on October 30, after cancellation of the September meeting due to the Superintendent having a scheduling conflict. ERTA cabinet members were anxious for the meeting to take place because important items were outstanding from last year and needed to be discussed and updated. The agenda included:  CTLE - The Distrct reported that they had been certified in July and were working on putting systems so they could provide credit and proper documentation for any CTLE activities they offer.  Teachers who attended CTLE activities last year will be given credit based on the sign-in sheets and conference forms.   A meeting to finalize configuration for My Learning Plan was set for November 7.  Ms. McVea will send ERTA an electronic copy of the District's Professional Development Plan so we can have it available for members.
