CHESTERFIELD, NJ – Chesterfield Elementary School Superintendent Scott Heino announced Thursday that the Board and the Chesterfield Township Education Association have reached a tentative agreement in the teacher’s negotiations. A letter released today details the next steps both political bodies will take to finalize the agreement.

Both the CTEA and the BOE will present the agreement to both of their memberships for ratification the week of April 29th.

The Education Association released a statement Thursday afternoon: “We are so grateful for all of the community members who were courageous enough to speak at BOE meetings, willing to put a sign on their lawn or just reach out and show support to their child’s educators.”

“Enjoy the Spring recess and we look forward to our return,” Superintendent Heino said in his statement. “[And] hopefully the ratification of the agreement!”

Board President Christina Hoggan and Vice-President Amy Jablonski are the two members on the subcommittee that participates in negotiations with the CTEA.

The teachers at Chesterfield have been without a contract for about 650 days, and have recently started standing out in front of the school before classes start each morning with signs urging the BOE to sign the agreement.
