We are pleased to announce that Shoreline School District has reached an agreement on a three-year contract with the Shoreline Education Association (SEA), which represents our teachers and non-supervisory certificated staff. The contract was ratified by SEA members on October 6 and is pending approval by the Shoreline School Board at their October 19 meeting. It would cover the 2021-2022, 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 school years. A copy of the recommended contract will be available when that meeting’s agenda is posted on October 15.

Highlights of the agreement include:

  • Salary increases of 1% plus cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) in the first year, 0% plus COLA in year 2, and 2% plus COLA in year 3
  • Deans at each school
  • Commitments to anti-racism and equity
  • Mentor program for staff of color
  • Support for implementation of culturally responsive teaching and Ethnic Studies curriculum
  • Incorporating the Shoreline Race and Equity Impact Decision-Making Tool into site-based decision-making
  • Designating Juneteenth as a non-student day in years it falls on a school day 

“I am incredibly grateful to our district and SEA bargaining teams for their work and collaboration over many months and hours in coming to agreement on a contract that centers and supports the needs of our staff, students and families,” said Superintendent Dr. Susana Reyes. “Their intentional and thoughtful focus on incorporating our district-wide work in the areas of anti-racism and equity will continue to propel this work forward in meaningful and authentic ways.”
