Teachers and support staff will receive extra earnings from the passing of the mill levy override, which came with a commitment of $15 million to go toward compensation.
At the end of February, the Jefferson County Education Association (JCEA) and the Jeffco Education Support Professionals Association (JESPA) negotiation teams came to an agreement on the breakdown of these funds. The Jefferson County Board of Education voted unanimously to accept the agreement at its March 7 meeting.
According to the agreement, moving forward teachers will get a 2.67 percent raise and will receive a one-time payment of backlog earnings from this school year.
Support staff will also receive extra earnings to be paid this spring based on their full-time equivalent employment.
Both organizations are currently in negotiations for next year’s contracts.
JCEA will have compensation discussions about any new monies for 2019-20 in sessions from March to May. Points under discussion include value of a steps; cost of living increases; levels based on educational attainment; salary schedule adjustments; missed steps; and salary placement leapfrogging.
JESPA is negotiating a full contract revision for 2019 and beyond, as the current six year contract is expiring. The union’s considerations also include value of steps; cost of living increases; salary schedule adjustments and missed pay-grade steps.
