School is back in session on Monday (Sept. 19)

The Ridgefield Education Association (REA) and Ridgefield School District (RSD) have come to a tentative agreement on a new teachers’ contract. The 2022-2023 school year will recommence with a regular attendance day at all district schools (including the Early Learning Center) on Monday (Sept. 19). 

As part of the final negotiations, an amended academic calendar will be finalized and emailed to parents, as well as posted on our school and district websites. School closures caused by a strike are much like weather-related school closures, and those dates must be made up. Students will receive 180 days of quality instruction regardless of any delays to the school year. 

The Ridgefield Education Association made the following statement on its Facebook page Sunday:

“We stuck together, made our strength and unity known, and our action worked. We are excited to announce we have achieved a Tentative Agreement with the district. Our solidarity on the picket lines and the enormous community support we received made all the difference. We’re looking forward to school tomorrow..’’

No details of the tentative agreement were available at the time of this report.
