On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, the District 208 Board of Education unanimously voted to approve a contract agreement with the Riverside Brookfield Education Association (RBEA). This three-year contract will expire on June 30, 2019.

The board and the union agreed on some key issues in this new contract, including but not limited to: adding an instructional coach for the special education department and adding additional sponsors for sports, clubs, and activities. The retirement incentives will also be restructured for teachers as well.

“We would like to thank all sides…both sides did a good job [negotiating],” said Kevin Skinkis, District 208 Superintendent.

Board members Ed Jepson and Dr. John Keen commended both sides for their patient negotiating.

“We are happy that the contract is fair,” said RBEA President John Fields.
