Board Negotiations

Negotiations for Spring 2017 between the district and the Jefferson County Education Association (JCEA) began in January 2017 and have now concluded. The full membership must ratify the agreement and the Board of Education will be asked to vote on the full agreement at the May 4 regular business meeting. The summary of the compensation package:

  • Increasing the amount paid to PERA on behalf of our employees by half a percent in January 2018. At that point, the district’s PERA contribution will account for 20 percent of an employee’s total compensation;
  • Providing for a step increase for effective employees;
  • Providing level increases for effective employees with graduate level credits;
  • Providing as much as a two percent cost of living (COLA) increase contingent on receiving sufficient state funding. Without sufficient state funding, the district will provide up to one percent of any shortfall;
  • Increasing the years of service offered to new employees hired for Fall of 2017 by one year – recognizing six years rather than five – and increasing by an additional year for the following two years until Jeffco Public Schools offers eight years of experience credit by 2019-2020.
