USD 428 School Board approves agreement to continue wages for teachers

Posted Mar 26, 2020 6:27 PM

The USD 428 Board of Education and Great Bend National Education Association (NEA) entered into an agreement regarding the distance learning due to school closures related to COVID-19. The agreement works out the details for teachers and other staff pertaining the remaining school year which ends at the end of June.

Those comfortable reporting to an open school building may perform their work responsibilities in the building, but classroom teachers will be allowed to work from a remote location.

As much as possible, communication between teachers and students/parents will be through email or online platforms being used to post and deliver instruction.

If classroom teachers need assistance with students who are not participating, or otherwise not performing the required lessons, the teacher will inform the building principal who will address the issue.

Members will be compensated their full salaries. Staff members that coach or supervise extra-curricular activities shall be paid their full stipends.
