This Agreement is made and entered into on the 5th  of December 2023 by and between the Board of Education of Unified School District 500, Kansas City, Kansas, Wyandotte County, and the National Education Association – Kansas City, Kansas, Inc., 11015 West 75th Terrace, Shawnee, Kansas 66214.  This Agreement is the result of good faith collective negotiations which have been conducted under the requirements of and directives of the Professional Negotiations Act (K.S.A. 72-2218 et seq.).

The provisions of this Agreement may be changed only by mutual consent of the Board and Association.  Each party has had the opportunity to make proposals with respect to all negotiable subjects, and therefore, each agrees that the other will not be obligated to negotiate during the life of this Agreement on any item for the school years 2023-24 or 2024-25 whether contained herein or not.  The parties agree to meet and confer on an annual basis. In the event the Board receives any change in general funding from the State for the 2024-25 school year (either in additional funding or reduced funding through modifications of the State budget, allotments or otherwise), both parties agree, if requested by either party prior to March 1, 2024, to reopen negotiations for the limited purpose of negotiating any changes to compensation for members of this bargaining unit or negotiate issues related to plan time, lunch times and/or nurse’s salary.

This Agreement shall be effective as of July 1, 2023 and shall continue in effect until June 30, 2025.  This Agreement shall not be extended orally and it is understood that it shall expire on the date indicated.

This Agreement shall be made accessible on the district web page.  Once ratified, the Agreement will be sent via email to the bargaining unit with one copy for each association representative provided by the Board.
