Questions regarding curriculum, building operations, and day to day practice are best addressed to your colleagues or any union leader. Please contact your Building Rep, Member Rights Advocate, or a seasoned District 16 teacher if you have problems or concerns that you feel involve the contract, job duties, or other work related issues.
Our mission here in SLP is to support our members in every way possible in order to ensure the best learning environment for our students as well as, a safe and full-filling environment for our members. Our union leadership team does receive a stipend for their work but are full-time teachers first and foremost. Our mission is to help support our teachers by building positive relationships within our local, between colleagues, and also with our administration. We must all work as a team in order to be successful. We work hard to ensure that our contract is being followed and that our members are being treated fairly and professionally. We will do our best to help each and every teacher deal with any problems and concerns so that they can spend more time focused on teaching and helping students be successful. In the past decade we have focused efforts during negotiations to slowly build a contract and salary schedule that will be more in line with top metro contracts than with those on the bottom. We are continually improving. We have also worked very hard with our administration to be consistent in our approach to both teacher and principal concerns. We have made good progress in both areas. Our commitment is to be present and supportive to all members. No problems are too small or too big to bring to our attention. Please do not hesitate to call on your union for support and guidance.
