Here is some background information on the reason for this communication. We are currently in contract negotiations with the Othello Education Association. One of the elements we have been negotiating is the impact of the previously agreed upon 2019-2020 bell schedule related to student contact time. One of the issues presented by the union was the additional 20 minutes of student contact time added under the 2019-2020 bell schedule. We worked hard to resolve this issue without making bell schedule changes and fortunately we were able to preserve the 2019-2020 bell schedule while maintaining our commitment to being responsible stewards of our resources. 


If you have questions, you may contact Thalia Lemus, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent, at 509-488-2659 ext. 1003 for more information.
