  • Important Message from the Board of Education

    Update:  Fact-finder’s Report accepted by the Board, rejected by the MBEA

    On Monday, October 30, 2017, the Mendham Borough Board of Education (“Board”) received the Fact-Finding Report from the independent, State-appointed fact-finder regarding the on-going Teacher negotiations. The Board’s Negotiating Committee reviewed the report and recommended that the Board accept the independent fact-finder’s report. On November 14, 2017, the Board passed a resolution accepting the independent fact-finder’s report.

    The Board requested that the Mendham Borough Education Association (“Teachers’ Association”) also approve and accept the fact-finder’s Report, so we could settle the negotiations and move forward.
    The fact-finder’s Report was based on the data and evidence presented by both sides. The independent fact-finder’s job is to evaluate the data and provide a recommendation for a fair settlement. The independent fact-finder was approved by both the Board and the Teachers’ Association before the process started.

    Regrettably, the Teachers’ Association did not accept the Fact-finder’s Report. Public Employment Relations Commission will appoint a super-conciliator to further assist the parties.
