I had my first meeting with Dave Stoddard, Interim Superintendent. We talked about our careers and how we came to be in our current positions. It is interesting that Dave was San Juan Education Association President over 25 years ago when he was starting his teaching career. He was a member of the Association through his teaching years. I believe JEA will be able to have a good working relationship with him while he serves in this position.
We established the meeting schedule for the negotiated Joint Committee that will function to address non-monetary issues prior to negotiations.
