Negotiations and Contract Information

JCEA and the Jeffco Board of Education began negotiating on their first Master Agreement in 1968. Since then a very comprehensive, yet flexible and innovative contract has evolved. 

JCEA's Negotiations Team represents teachers: JCEA's Negotiations Team looks like the teachers they represent throughout the bargaining process. They are from high, middle and elementary schools and teach a variety of disciplines. Members of the team must be appointed by the president and approved by the JCEA Council. Then, they must agree to attend specialized training. JCEA greatly appreciates the valuable contributions these members make to improve teaching and learning conditions in Jeffco Public Schools.

JCEA/JPS contract variance process: JCEA and JPS have agreed on a process for schools to request variances in the contract. The proposed variances are reviewed by a committee made up of representatives from JCEA and JPS. Before the committee considers any request, a check-list form must be submitted in a timely manner. For more information on the variance process contact Lisa Elliott.

JCEA Contract- please note: the contract is a pdf document that is searchable. Simply type CTRL F and a search window will pop up.

JPS Policies and Board Documents- Jeffco has a searchable database that makes it easy to find district policies and documents related to board of education meetings.
