Labor Contracts & Agreements

Labor Contracts and Agreements are agreed upon language related to processes governing HR work.  This section provides recommended language for HR work included in contracts and agreements.

Because 80-85% of most district's operating budgets go for salaries and benefits, HR's role in finding and keeping great talent for every position is essential for improving student outcomes.
