Hello LCSD Educators ,
We are pleased to let you know that the Lake County School District and the Lake County Teachers Association worked together to come to an agreement regarding teacher contracts for the 2020-21 school year. Teachers will see a salary step and the ability to continue to earn lanes. Teachers will also add three additional paid days to the school year. The additional days are as follows:
- One day will be Professional Development to be scheduled and directed by the building leadership.
- One day will be a teacher “Flex Day” in which 8 hours of work may be submitted with documentation to the building principal.
- One day will be a teacher Work Day, decided upon by building leadership, and the teacher needs to be present. This work day is optional, at the employee’s discretion to participate.
Check your school email for your contract. Please sign your contract electronically or by hard copy and return to Noreen Flores by July 10, 2020. Reach out to Noreen at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We appreciate your patience in waiting for this agreement as negotiations were delayed as we waited for our budget to be finalized by the state legislature. The legislature was delayed due to COVID-19.
On a personal note, I would like to thank each of you for the opportunity to work with you over the past eight years. I have learned so much from all of you and am grateful for the incredible work you do with our students. I am especially thankful for the tremendous effort you put in this spring as we implemented remote instruction. It has been an honor and a privilege to work with you. I look forward to following the future successes of the district.
