ACT TO APPROVE MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING AND AGREEMENT WITH VETA (Ms. Goodloe)

Through negotiations, an agreement has been reached with VETA for 2012/2013. Provisions for the Memorandum of Understanding include: For the period of June 8, 2012, through June 30, 2013, the district-wide class average will be 33 students. Provisions for an agreement by and between VESD and VETA include changes to the following articles:

I. CHANGES TO THE AGREEMENT
The following articles have been modified and are attached for review (strike out indicates deletion, and bold type indicates new language):

Article XI - Leave
Article XV-A - Job Share Partnerships
Article XV-B - Part-Time Assignment
Article XVI - Evaluation
Article XX - Citizen Complaints

II. DISTRICT CLASS SIZE AVERAGE
The district's class size average has been modified to 33 students. This modification does not change the maximum number of students in a classroom as described in Article VIII. This modification allows the district to avoid monetary penalties that could be up 2 million dollars and will result in a savings of approximately $750,000.

The Memorandum of Understanding dated June 8, 2012–June 30, 2013, and the agreement between Victor Elementary School District and Victor Elementary Teachers Association dated September 4, 2012, were created by district and VETA negotiators using the Interest Based Bargaining approach and a neutral facilitator. VETA held a ratification vote on September 11, 2012. By a majority vote, the Memorandum of Understanding addressing district Class Size Average and the agreement between the district and VETA was approved by the bargaining unit members.

The recommended action is to approve the Memorandum of Understanding and agreement between VETA and VESD as presented.
