Hybrid MOU 2020-2021
"Anything in the MOU is temporary and serves to alter the collective bargaining agreement with the district for a specific time. If something isn’t addressed in the MOU, you should fall back on the language in the contract.
Also, this MOU is in place of the previously agreed upon MOU for work while the district was in a Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) model. If a building or the district has to move back
to distance learning we will work under that previous MOU."
MOU 2020-2021 during CDL
The terms of this MOU are valid through January 4th of 2021. It covers the time of Comprehensive Distance Learning.
Professional Development Reimbursement
GBEA would like to pay members who have been going above and beyond to provide professional development to their colleagues.

You can include multiple videos/calls, and will be paid accordingly.
