Consensus and WCFS Agreements/Negotiations - First and foremost we are addressing concerns with the agreement and will not ratify until those issues are addressed. The TUSD Governing Board approved the tentative agreements with no other changes. We are posting the agreements, however as we are moving forward with discussions itís is difficult to update where we are in the process. As soon as we have more information you will receive an accurate update and a timeline to ratify.
TEA is committed to visiting members and being present at our school sites, as well as interfacing with district leadership and our community, so the TEA office is often closed. We try to staff all day Wednesday but please schedule an appointment to insure that someone will be in the office to meet with you.
