Superintendent Jose Banda: “I want to express my thanks to the Seattle Teachers Association and the Seattle Public Schools bargaining teams for their efforts to craft a tentative contract agreement for the 2013-14 school year.  All of us at Seattle Public Schools value the contributions, skills and dedication that our educators bring to Seattle Public Schools every day, and their commitment to our students’ success.  SEA has informed us that the membership will vote on the tentative agreement on Tuesday, Sept. 3 at 4:30 p.m.  We look forward to having an approved agreement and a successful start to the 2013 school year.”

The press statement said that no additional information is available since SEA membership still needs to vote on the contract Tuesday night.

    Looks like KCPQ has cotton in their ears. Banda said Seattle Education Association, not Teachers association.
    Besides. Teachers were only a part of the group that were under negotiations.
