School Board Meeting Schedule and Agendas

Contract Negotiations

The Board, District Administration and the Winnebago Education Association (WEA) have worked diligently since April, 2017 to reach an agreement on a contract that will allow our schools to continue providing the best education possible for all of our children. The current collective bargaining agreement expired in August, 2017, and everyone continues to work hard to get a new agreement in place. Teachers continue to receive compensation, benefits and protections under the contract that expired in August, 2017.  

The parties jointly agreed to participate in federal mediation in January, 2018. Through mediation, the parties have reached tentative agreements on a multitude of issues. However, the parties have not reached an agreement on the important economic items of salary and retirement.

In April 2018, the Winnebago Education Association (WEA) initiated the public posting process, pursuant to Section 1130.35(c) of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board (IELRB).  The public proposals may be viewed on the State of Illinois Educational Relations Labor Board web site

Intent to Strike

The District is in communication with the WEA and the mediator.  The parties are working on scheduling additional negotiation sessions to bring this matter to a conclusion for the benefit of the School District, WEA, and our students and citizens of the community.
