Negotiated Agreement

Every year, several members of the DEA Executive Board meet with several representatives of the school district and negotiate the agreement for the next year. This agreement establishes the rights and responsibilities that both teachers and the district have. Some of the specific topics covered are:

  1. Compensation
  2. Benefits
  3. Personnel Management
  4. Workplace Conditions
  5. Employment Obligations
If you have something that you feel should be in the agreement, please feel free to fill out the form on the Get in Touch page of this site with your suggestions.

If you have questions regarding your contract (this agreement), please reach out to DEA.

FAQs About the Agreement

The DEA is the sole designated negotiator on behalf of all teachers in Davis School District.

The pay period is from the 1st to the 30th of each month. You are then paid for that time on the last banking day of the next month

A couple of years ago it was negotiated that if

  • both you and your spouse work for the district
  • both are eligible to receive insurance through the district
  • both are signed up under one person

then the district will pay 100% of your health and dental insurance premiums.

This is a benefit most other districts don’t have.

The Sick Leave Policy provides full pay in cases of illness and personal bereavement (no separate leave for bereavement).

  • For the first 3 years of teaching you receive 7 “sick days” a year
  • After the 3 years, that goes up to 10 days.
  • You can check your current balance on your pay stub or on Encore.
    • One day is considered 8 hours
  • The days are assumed on July 1, but accrued throughout the year.
    • If you leave the district mid year, you will have to pay back any used sick leave that had not yet been accrued.

Unused sick days will be accumulated, with no cap of how many you can accumulate.

  • If you run out of sick leave, you may request an advance of up to 5 sick days.
    • Those days will be deducted from future sick pay allotment
    • If you leave the district before repaying advanced days, you will have to pay for the days out of your final paycheck.

Upon retirement, your sick hours are paid out at 21.5% of the value of the days to a health savings account
