Board and teachers reach four-year contract agreement
4-29-2015: The Board of Education has approved a new four-year contract with the Lake Bluff Teachers’ Council, the professional organization for the District’s approximately 90 certified staff members. The new contract agreement is effective July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2019. Under the terms of the four-year deal, the District’s teachers will receive average increases in their total compensation of 3.2% per year. This includes one-time salary adjustments in the first year designed to bring our teachers’ salaries more in line with other North Shore school districts, as well as additional cost sharing for medical and dental coverage. While salaries will go up an average of 3.8% per year, employee contributions to their medical and dental coverage will double over the term of the contract, from 3% of the individual premium to 6%. This increased employee contribution helps to reduce the overall increase in total compensation to the annual rate of 3.2%. The District will realize additional savings with the elimination of a currently existing post retirement severance payment, which will sunset at the end of this contract. 

Board of Education President Mark Barry thanked the Teachers’ Council and District Administration for their collaborative work to reach this agreement, stating, “This four-year agreement will allow for critical long-term educational and financial planning. It maintains District 65’s competitive salary structure, while assuring fiscal stability for the District and its taxpayers.” Link to contract>>  (51 page pdf)
