Del Valle: School board rejects TASB language

In a stunning victory for the fledgling Del Valle Education Association and district teachers, the Del Valle ISD school board on April 19th voted 8-1 to approve an addendum to the teacher term contract which effectively deletes the exploitative Texas Association of School Boards recommended contract language which had opened the door to teachers working up to 300 days without a penny of additional compensation. Connie Acosta, a veteran teacher and member of Del Valle Education Association speaks to the school board in favor of such an addendum. The proposal to have teachers sign an addendum to their contract was prompted by the lobbying and organizing efforts of the local association.
