2022 SEA Bargaining Team

We all win more when we stand together to advocate for our students and ourselves. This year’s team for the big bargain includes members from across the district who reflect many different viewpoints and experiences and are ready to speak up for what we need.  Our elected SEA Board voted to approve these members and they are working intensively, developing proposals and exchanging them with the district, driving to gain a contract that makes SPS jobs, services, and teaching even better.
