Last year's contract dealt with big issues to get schools reopened safely and ensure educators a baseline level of respect needed to stay in the job, including retroactive pay raises for the past three years when they worked under an expired contract. 

This year, teachers are focusing on sustained, specific support to help make the entire school system safer and more responsive to student needs. By Sept. 30th, 2023, we want to present the WTU membership with a new tentative agreement for their vote. DCPS must partner with us on this common goal!
