One-Year Contract Extension

The Great Valley Board of School Directors approved a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) with the Great Valley Education Association (GVEA) at its meeting on Tuesday, February 16, 2021. The agreement represents a one-year extension of the current contract (2018-2021) with GVEA, which expires on June 30, 2021.

The agreement is a one-year contract extension that will expire in June 2022. Highlights of the agreement include:

  • Average salary increase of approximately 2.73%, which is less than the Act 1 Index.
  • All other terms and agreements of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement remain the same.

There are currently 370 members of the Great Valley Education Association. Both the Board of School Directors and GVEA agreed that a one-year contract extension was in the best interest of students and the community at this time. The delay of formal negotiations allows the entire district to remain focused on students and their educational program as it continues to navigate the impacts of the current pandemic.
