Posted Jul. 31, 2017 by

The Dayton Education Association, which represents 1,000 educators in the Dayton Public Schools, is in a very difficult contract negotiations. To date, after well over 100 hours of negotiation meetings, the DEA's top proposals have fallen on deaf ears.

With nearly 121 educators leaving for other school districts in the last 12 months, over 100 classrooms are being staffed with reserve teachers and those who are not fully licensed. Staffing is a top priority for the union.

The union has proposed three items, which they believe are in the common good of the Dayton community:

  1. School Guidance Counselors in every building
  2. Open and staffed library media centers in every school
  3. Comprehensive English Language and English as a Second Language programming across the district.
