Hooray for the Portola Valley Teachers Association. Negotiating a three year contract seems to have grown more rare in recent years.
13 months is actually a fairly typical amount of time to negotiate a contract. I did contract negotiations for nine years on a neighboring district, and it took us 13 or more months a few times.
I agree with them whole heartedly that the last three years have been extremely stressful and demanding for teachers. I have witnessed some local Superintendents receive quite large salary increases for how well they managed the Pandemic, and yet the same districts have been closed fisted in doing the same for the teaches.
Glad Portola Valley recognized the commitment of the teachers.
