After more than 7-½ hours of negotiations starting at 6:00 p.m. on Monday evening and continuing until 1:30 a.m. this morning, the Geneva Education Association (GEA), the union that represents our approximately 450 teachers, walked out of negotiations and called for a strike. As a result, schools will be closed today, Tuesday, Dec. 4.
The Board of Education
is grateful for the many calls and emails urging both parties to resolve their
differences and to put the needs of our students first by reaching agreement on
a fair and fiscally responsible multi-year contract that compensates our
teachers fairly and competitively for their work, while operating within the
financial means of the District and advancing the best interests of all
District 304 stakeholders, including our students, parents and community.
At this time, no
additional negotiating sessions have been scheduled. We will continue to
provide daily email updates to allow our families to plan accordingly to ensure
that our students are safe and productive during this unfortunate disruption to
