MAEA felt the love last Tuesday night (February 9) from parents who came out to the school board meeting to support our teachers. Thank you for actively standing with us as we all work towards positive change in our district. Additionally, we are thankful for the parents who spoke out during the meeting itself. They requested clarification & transparency of the board in regards to several concerns such as student programming and district financing. We also appreciate the words of respect and acknowledgement spoken by several school board members at the end of the meeting last Tuesday. This is the culture of professional respect we would like to continue presently and into the future.
We are poised for a week of movement in one direction or another. The MAEA negotiating team will be meeting with the Mars Area School District school board and administration in the coming days. We are hopeful for continued movement and cordial negotiations. Again, we extend an abundance of appreciation to parents and community members who are also desiring the best for our students and residents living in the Mars Area School District.
