From an Everett Public Schools news release.

Everett Public Schools and the Everett Education Association reached tentative agreement on a new contract at 10:31 pm on Friday, August 28, 2015.

The Association will meet to ratify the agreement on Tuesday, September 1st, at 11 am, and the District's board of directors is expected to act on the contract at its Tuesday, September 8th, regular board meeting.

A copy of the proposed new Collective Bargaining Agreement will be posted to the board’s online agenda on Monday, September 7th.

Pending Association ratification of the new agreement, schools will open and follow their regular FULL DAY schedules on Wednesday, September 9th.

The Wednesday after Labor Day has been the traditional first day of school for Everett Public Schools for many years.

Pending approval by the school board, the year-at-a-glance school calendar will be posted online and emailed to all parents on the first day of school.

In mid-September, students will be provided copies of the new student art calendar.

"We are very pleased to have reached tentative agreement with the Association. It is welcome news that our teachers and students are heading back to the classrooms on time, and that together we are able to face the year ahead and focus collaboratively on student success," said Everett Public Schools Superintendent Gary Cohn.
