Update On JEA Negotiations

The new single lane salary schedule has been ratified by the Jordan Education Association. The single lane proposal has always had increasing teacher pay and enhancing lifetime earnings as its primary goal. While the vast majority of teachers will be better off on the new salary schedule, because of current lane and step placement and/or based on personal circumstances, some teachers may prefer to remain on the old salary schedule.

Leadership from the Jordan Board of Education, Jordan District administration, and the Jordan Education Association have agreed on a plan to allow teachers to stay on the current salary schedule or elect to transition to the new single lane schedule depending on which choice best fits their needs. Details and deadlines for when employees need to make their decisions are still being determined.
