Highlights of Master Teacher Contract

A new contract between the Wawasee Community Educators Association and the Wawasee Community School Corporation was approved in April.

Highlights of the agreement include:
  • The contract is in effect from July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011.
  • The agreement is for a 0% salary increase for 2010-11.
  • Salary and up to two language items will be negotiated annually.
  • Parent-Teacher conference language was included for 2010-11.

In addition, a retirement incentive plan for teachers was adopted by the school board.

In these trying economic times, both the teachers and school board worked well together to find common ground for a new contract.
