Negotiations Committee

One of the main responsibilities of a school board is to negotiate contracts with employee representatives. Mandatory subjects of bargaining include: salary, related economic conditions of employment, provisions for collecting an agency service fee, grievance procedures, and any mutually agreed upon matters not in conflict with statutes.

Vermont Education Health Initiative

School districts within OSSU use the Vermont Education Health Initiative (VEHI) to provide health insurance benefits to their employees and their dependents. The current plans offered by VEHI will no longer be available after December 31, 2017. Visit the VEHI Website or view VEHI's General Overview to learn more.
