between Support Staff Association, IEA-NEA and West Chicago Elementary School
During the last several
months, the Support Staff Association, IEA-NEA and West Chicago District 33
held contract negotiations for a new contract. The contract we are currently
working under was effective from 2014 through 2018, therefore expiring at the
end of this school year.
For the first time with SSA, we utilized the Interest Based Bargaining model which is a model whose principles are to address issues in more depth than those reached using a traditional model because they are the result of a process aimed at satisfying mutual interest by consensus, and not just one side’s interest at the expense of the other group.
We are pleased to
announce that the new SSA, IEA-NEA and West Chicago Elementary School District
33 contract was ratified on January 19, 2018 and Board approved on February 1,
Contract Negotiations between Elementary Teachers’ Association of West Chicago and West Chicago Elementary School District 33

2018. Just like last time, we will be utilizing the Interest Based Bargaining

January Sub of the Month
Godoy Guerra was nominated and chosen as the Sub of the Month for January.
According to Stephanie Drake, Principal at Gary School, Amy stepped in this fall
to help subbing and doing maternity leaves. She quickly became part of the
team, helping out in any position that was needed. She is an expert at
Technology and helped the 3rd grade team set up data tracking sheets. She is
al-ways smiling and cares so much for the students, families, and colleagues.
She will do anything for anybody. District 33 would like to thank you for your
dedication to our district!
