The Independent School District 834 board will be asked to approve a master contract and terms and conditions for employee groups tonight.

Staff will present the 2012 master contract for the St. Croix Paraprofessional Association as well as the terms and conditions for Community Education leads and assistants.

The master contract expires June 30 and covers approximately 187 people who hold positions in general education, special education and health paraprofessionals. The school district and paraprofessional recently came to an agreement on the new contract, which will last through 2014.

Community Education’s updated Terms & Conditions also expires on June 30 and covers approximately 50 people holding positions as Site Lead, Program Lead and Community Education assistants. The new Terms & Conditions will last through 2014.

Another action item is the second reading of the board governance process policies, which was reviewed at the May 24 board meeting.

In addition to the three action items, the board will receive the first reading of the 2012-2013 Discipline Policy, which is reviewed and updated on an annual basis. The 2012-2013 preliminary budget will also be reviewed with the board before it comes up for approval at the June 28 board meeting.

The board meets at 5 p.m. for a learning session at City Hall followed by its business meeting at 7:15 p.m., also at City Hall. Both meetings are open to the public.
