Teamwork at Saint Croix Falls

St. Croix Falls Teachers took action when a school board agenda item caught their eye. The board was taking under consideration a proposal to eliminate a policy that has existed since 1985 that allows for staff involvement in decision-making. Through this policy, association members have been active and influential on committees dealing with insurance, quality improvement, and compensation. Various members of the Executive Committee arranged meetings and began contacting administrators and board members. Highlighting the successes and positive working relationship that has been developed while pointing out the irony of eliminating a staff input policy without input from the staff, the proposed change has been shelved.
