Letter: Thanking Coupeville School Board, admin.


As a community member and the husband of a Coupeville School District teacher, I want to thank the Coupeville superintendent, Steve King, and the Coupeville School Board, Christine Sears, Glenda Merwine, Kathleen Anderson, Venessa Matros and Brent Stevens, for looking past the rhetoric and working with the Coupeville Education Association and Coupeville Educational Support Association to come up with a new contract.

By working cooperatively, they were able to create a contract that is fiscally sustainable and still provides an amazing adjustment to the salary of teachers and other staff at the school district.

It’s great to see Coupeville once more leading the way on the island, providing their teachers and staff with the best possible salaries given their financial situation.

So, thank you, Coupeville, for standing with your teachers and staff, and showing how it can be done, and done right.
