District and teachers union reach tentative agreement

The Sumner Education Association (SEA) and Sumner-Bonney Lake School District (SBLSD) are excited to announce the approval of a tentative agreement reached today, September 1.


Reaching a tentative agreement means that the District will start school as scheduled on September 5, with kindergarten beginning September 10.


The two bargaining teams worked diligently since March to come to this two-year SEA contract, which gives our hard-working and dedicated teachers the raise they deserve. Attracting and retaining caring, qualified educators in our schools will ensure the best support for our Sumner and Bonney Lake students.


Next steps are for SEA’s general membership to vote on the contract September  4. The School Board will vote at the September 19 board meeting.
