At the July 13 meeting, the Wauseon Board of Education ratified a three-year agreement with the Ohio Association of Public School Employees (OAPSE) Local #533.
Highlights of the new agreement include removing the spring jacket incentive, increasing the longevity payment in year 20 and 25 and adding an additional longevity step at year 31. The new agreement also removes some of the personal leave restrictions, added a new category of leave for funerals and increased DAR annual services payment from $1750 to $2000.
