News Release, Joint Press Release of the Board of Education of Calvert County and the Calvert Association of Educational Support Staff

Prince Frederick, MD- The negotiations teams for the Board of Education of Calvert County and the Calvert Association of Educational Support Staff (CAESS) reached a four-year negotiated agreement for school years 2020-2021 through 2023-2024. The agreement was approved at the meeting of the Board of Education on July 16.

The collaborative effort between the parties resulted in an agreement that includes step increases, step restoration, and increases to existing salary scales, which will serve to satisfy future minimum wage requirements.

Additional items in the tentative agreement include health and life insurance benefits, staff development, and a committee to study current job descriptions as they pertain to educational requirements and position on the wage scale.

Implementation of the negotiated agreement is predicated on sufficient annual funding from the Calvert County fiscal authorities.
