This course is for all educational leaders who take an active role in the collective bargaining process. Participants will learn the legal aspects of bargaining in Illinois. Prior to the course meeting, participants will be required to review a sampling of readily available documents (school board meeting minutes, administrative group meeting minutes, newspaper articles, etc.) related to the last two contract negotiations in their districts. Based on that review and their analysis of current relevant issues, participants will come to the session with a prepared list of questions/issues that they wish to see addressed. In class, participants will study current bargaining issues, strategies and approaches and they will conclude their learning experience by developing a specific plan to apply this new learning to their local bargaining situation.
