PPS Mediation Update - August 31, 2023

August 31


Today, we started the state-led mediation process with one priority: our children’s success. We offered compromises that would keep that vision at the heart of our work – and maintained our position on proposals that would negatively impact students.


While we remain apart on many issues, we made good progress during this first round. Today’s back-and-forth resulted in four tentative agreements.


We continue to strive for common ground that keeps our children at the center, keeps schools open, and respects our teachers. We remain fully committed to reaching a consensus with PAT and look forward to making further progress at our two upcoming mediation sessions.
