On July 7, 2016, the Westlake Schools Board of Education and the Westlake Teachers Association (WTA) reached a tentative agreement on a three-year contract. This tentative agreement is the collaborative product of recent meetings between the leadership of each group, report Westlake Schools.
“We all recognized the importance of educating our students, and ultimately, that sentiment prevailed and a settlement was reached,” said Board President, Carol Winter. “Now the district can move forward together and return its exclusive focus back to educating our students at the highest levels of excellence.”
“The WTA is appreciative of the Board’s efforts to rebuild the collaborative environment that has defined Westlake for the past two decades, and we look forward to working together to educate for excellence,” said WTA President Patrick McMorrow.
More information about the specific details of the three-year contract will be released at a future date.
