The Thompson School District and the Board of Education welcome you to the 2021-2022 Negotiation and/or Committee Work Session.

Please respect that negotiations is a process intended to contribute to student success and achievement by improving the working conditions, personnel guidelines and policies, and salary and benefits for employees in the district. In addition to improving working conditions and compensation, ideas are generated through negotiations that address issues and obstacles to student achievement, innovation, and reform.

The team will work collaboratively over several weeks and create recommendations to the Board of Education. The discussions evolve over a series of meetings and issues are described and solutions articulated. As a visitor, you may be hearing only part of the conversation. It is important to understand that you may not have all the information. We would ask you to wait for the final recommendations before talking about the content of negotiations in public.

Correspondence and communication about the content and negotiation process, including any updates, will be shared through spokespersons, Andy Crisman and Bill Siebers.

The teams may ask for a Caucus at any time during the meeting. Observation and participation in the Caucus will be by invitation from a group representative.

We respectfully request that our visitors:

  • Honor confidentiality
  • Listen to learn and understand
  • Respect the work of the individuals and the team
  • Do not interfere with the conversation or process

Individuals will be asked to leave if norms are violated. Thank you for your interest in the 2021-2022 negotiations process.
