The Council of Local Presidents met on Saturday. Most of the discussion was updates on negotiations throughout the state. There are some associations close to settling. Some districts should have steps, lanes, COLAs, and/or a bonus. One district is finally getting a step after two years of being frozen. Another district is getting a half step, just as they did last year, which is essentially a step every other year.
Two districts will be implementing new salary schedules. They are both different from Jordan's traditional salary schedule and different from each other.
Changes to evaluations is at the forefront of UEA's work currently. This will be a focus of UEA's Summer Leadership Academy.
I was elected CLP Vice President for 2013-14. I hope I can represent my fellow local presidents well.
