January 25, 2021: "The school district, KPEA, and KPESA bargaining teams met, and are moving forward through an Interest Based Bargaining (IBB) process. As a team, we are working toward shared understanding, mutual trust, and a collective list of topics for consideration. In the coming weeks we look forward to meeting in smaller committees to refine those discussions for our next full session on February 4, 2021. IBB is closed to the public—watch for our next joint update after February 6, 2021.” – KPBSD, KPEA, KPESA bargaining teams
