About the 2023 Contract Campaign

Signed Contract Icon

Last year's contract dealt with big issues to get schools reopened safely and ensure educators a baseline level of respect needed to stay in the job, including retroactive pay raises for the past three years when they worked under an expired contract. This time, teachers are focusing on sustained, specific support to help make the entire school system safer and more responsive

to student needs. However, we cannot do this alone. DCPS refuses to set firm dates to begin negotiations! Still. Does that make good budgeting sense to you?? It’s just a few months away from DCPS’ deadline to submit their FY25 Budget to the DC City Council, but without a teachers contract, how can DCPS budget accurately for true costs? DC City Councilman Mendelson asked the same question here.
