Contract Negotiations Continue

As you may know, the Shoreline School District is still in negotiations with the Shoreline Education Association to determine a contract for the coming year.

Resources for more information include the Shoreline Education Association web page (Please see the “Bargaining” tab; the most recent information is posted at the bottom of that page) and the Shoreline School District web page.

If you would like to share your opinion on the contract negotiations, send an email to the School Board at You are encouraged to attend the next School Board meeting at 7pm on Monday, August 24th at the Shoreline School District office. Additionally, yard signs that state, "We support Shoreline Students and Teachers” will be available throughout the community.  Please contact Annthea Vining, Brookside PTA President, to receive a sign (
