At their monthly meeting in April, the Chariton Community School Board approved a contract agreement between the Chariton Community School District and the Chariton Community Education Association (CCEA).

The board approved Superintendent Paula Wright’s recommendation for a three-year agreement for CCEA, which includes a three-percent total package increase each year. The contract will be in effect until June 30, 2021.

Wright said for the current school year, that includes a base salary of $32,115, with an estimated total cost of $254,831.08. All of the language from the contract will now move to the handbook, which the school board will review in May or June.

The teacher’s association approved the agreement on Wednesday, March 28, 2018. After the school board approved the agreement, contracts were issued to the teaching staff.

The board approved the final reading of policy series 206-217 of the policy manual.

The board decided to table action on a contract agreement between the Chariton School District and the AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees), which is the largest trade union of public employees in the U.S.

The board decided not to take action the agreement because the union hasn’t ratified the agreement yet and it’s normal procedure to have the union ratify the agreement before the school board approves it.
