Earlier this school year, the Alliance filed a group grievance on behalf of Pre-K and Head Start teachers and assistants. Over 150 teachers and assistants signed onto the grievance. The grievance was heard at level one on November 15, 2011, and on December 16, we received Ms. Brightman’s response, click here to view response.

Our Alliance Pre-K/Head Start Advisory Team met on January 4, 2012 to review and discuss the response. The decision was to appeal the decision to level two, which is the superintendent’s level. That appeal was filed last week. We are awaiting a hearing date for the level two hearing. If any of you who signed onto the grievance disagrees with proceeding to level two, please let the Alliance Office know by calling 225-7174. If any of you who did not sign onto the grievance would like to add your name, please let us know. Thank you for all that you do for our students and their families. Please let us know if you have any questions about the grievance.
