Students’ Bill of Rights
I’d like to recognize the new agreement that the Granite Education Association (GEA) and the Granite School District just brokered. The GSD and GEA reached an agreement for a 5% COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) and 3% One-time Bonus to teachers for next year 20-21.
The date of the agreement is as meaningful as the agreement itself. On April 1st. We are facing massive downwards swings in the stock markets and layoffs are common occurrence as life as we know it is practically as a standstill.
As a reminder, the agreement for last year (2019-20) was a 2.5% COLA, 3 additional work days, and a 3.0% one-time bonus for both teachers and education support professionals.
