Barrington Board, Teachers Reach Agreement

Tuesday night negotiations results in tentative three-year agreement between the Barrington 220 Board of Education and the Barrington Education Association.

The Barrington 220 Board and the Barrington Education Association released a joint statement early this morning.

A Joint Statement: 

Board, BEA tentatively reach new agreement for teachers

After 11 months of negotiations that began in March 2012, the Barrington 220 Board of Education - representing the community - and the Barrington Education Association (BEA) - representing over 700 teachers employed by the school district - have tentatively reached a new three-year agreement.

If ratified by the BEA membership and approved by the Board at an upcoming meeting, the tentative agreement will be retroactive to the beginning of this school year when the previous contract expired. Board President Brian Battle and BEA President Melanie Collins said the new agreement allows the school district to maintain its quality programs for Barrington 220 students.  

Once the agreement is ratified by members of the BEA and approved by the Board, a summary will be available to the public before the full agreement is later available online.

School Board elections are next month.....be careful who you vote for. Watch out for big spenders.......Change will have to start at the bottom. Hint: One candidate for school board was a generous donor to big government. Do your homework citizens or this will never stop.
