Dear Students and Parents,

As we begin School Year 2016-2017, we share our K-12 vision for a district united by its mascot, colors, vision, and community spirit.

While we know each school has its own culture and unique tradition, and we do not want to lose that, we also know that our students need to be part of a K-12 process that begins with students entering the district in kindergarten or first grade and staying with us through high school graduation...

MNSD Press Release - October 27, 2015

MARPLE NEWTOWN SCHOOL DISTRICT PROVIDES UPDATE REGARDING ONGOING TEACHER CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS

The Marple Newtown School District has been negotiating a successor labor agreement with its teacher’s union (“MNEA”) since January 9, 2015.  The District takes this bargaining process very seriously, including most recently by releasing union representatives from their work day on October 12, 2015 in order to focus a full day toward reaching a settlement.  Members of the District’s bargaining team with full authority to recommend an agreement for Board approval have attended each bargaining session and have worked – both during and in between bargaining sessions – to incorporate aspects of the union’s requests into the district’s proposals.  The District has carefully reviewed market conditions and its own internal and community needs, and offered MNEA a comprehensive compensation package that raises starting salaries and includes salary increases for current teachers that far exceed the current cost of living increase.  The District greatly appreciates the work that our teachers do, and will continue to work in good faith to reach a settlement that is fair to all parties affected.
