Negotiations resume with discussion of compensation, contract exclusivity


CASTLE ROCK - Open negotiations continued Thursday June 28 with both the Douglas County School District and the Douglas County Federation of Teachers seeking clarity on issue positions.

The session was held in the boardroom at the District's Administration Building in Castle Rock from Noon to 3 p.m.

The next step in the process is to combine proposals for consideration by the Board of Education. The next slated Board of Education meeting is July 17. Any agreement reached between the Board of Education and the DCFT can be made retroactive to July 1.

The District expects business as usual on July 1.

Ninety-nine percent of our teachers have signed contracts and plan on returning to the classroom in August. Compensation for teachers will be at least the same as last year – the District has proposed a 1 percent raise and a 1 percent retention bonus.

Below are the audio recordings from the June 28 meeting.
