Prairie Grove Education Support Personnel Contract Update

The Prairie Grove CSD 46 Board of Education (Board) and Prairie Grove Education Support Personnel (PGESP) continue to meet and negotiate in good faith for a fair and competitive contract. Both parties met last evening for nearly 5 hours. While no resolution was reached, there was good discussion and several open areas were better defined. The next negotiation/mediation session is scheduled for November 1, 2017 at 4pm.

The Board maintains its desire to reach an agreement on all outstanding issues. However, to maintain wide-ranging educational programs, staff stability and student achievement the Board believes that it must safeguard District 46’s financial position for future years. We will keep everyone updated if there are new developments via our website www.dist46.org, Panther Press, Facebook www.facebook.com/PrairieGrove46/, Twitter www.twitter.com/PrairieGrove46 and our Alert Now phone system.
