As in past posts on this Negotiation Page, posts will contain a brief overview of meetings between the SCEA and SCSD Negotiation Teams and attachments of any issued or received written proposals. To avoid any misrepresentation of statements made during negotiation team meetings, the district will not post statements made by individuals during the meetings, as meetings are not recorded and meeting minutes are not kept.
