CSSU Board, teachers reach agreement


The Chittenden South Education Association and the School Boards of Chittenden South Supervisory Union have announced a new contract for the 2013-2014 school year, according to an Oct. 26 joint press release. The new contract will maintain current working conditions and benefits. Raises for teachers will be based on experience and level of education. Combined, these increases will total approximately 3 percent. As previously agreed, teachers will also increase their contribution to health insurance premiums to 15 percent.

In addition, the two parties agreed to create three committees charged with making recommendations in the next negotiation session. Those committees will explore issues relating to seniority, reduction in force language, and professional expectations including work day and work year issues. There will also be a team that investigates avenues that ensure a positive climate for future negotiations.

“The CSEA and the Boards are pleased with the new contract and believe it is in the best interest of the students, teachers and communities of the Chittenden South Supervisory Union,” the press release states.


  1. Louis M. Izzo says:

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
