South Kitsap School District announces tentative agreement with South Kitsap Education Association

South Kitsap School District (SKSD) and South Kitsap Education Association have reached a tentative agreement. The proposal will be presented to SKEA members for a vote, and then if ratified, presented to the School Board for approval.
“We are very pleased that we were able to reach a tentative agreement with our dedicated and skilled staff in the South Kitsap Education Association,”commented Board President Keith Garton. “I also want to acknowledge the hardwork of the district’s bargaining team.”
President Garton also added that the School Board has directed Superintendent Michelle Reid to work with district stakeholders to continue the focus on rebuilding the district’s reserves and fiscal stability. The Board also expects Dr. Reid to work on the implementation of the recommendations from the recent independent fiscal review.
“We want to thank everyone in the community for your dedication to our school system and your patience as we worked on reaching a tentative agreement. I know both the district and SKEA are united in providing the best education possible for South Kitsap students.”
