“School boards engage in open and honest communication with school employees during collective bargaining,” ASBSD Director of Policy and Legal Services Gerry Kaufman said.


“These seminars are designed to equip boards with the knowledge of what to expect and how to react during negotiations, as well as what’s required by state statute of the district.”
