Statement from Holland Township Board of Education
Tuesday, June 21st, 2016
We are happy that the Board of Education and HTEA have reached the conclusion of the negotiations process. We feel language changes and settlement rates have been fair to both parties. However the board is extremely disappointed that our request for a fair and equitable distribution in the development of the salary guides was not implemented for teachers and particularly aides.
In the interest of concluding this extended process the board has voted on the contract as ratified by HTEA on June 7th. The board motion passed with 4 ayes and 2 nays.
