Teachers planning to rally tonight ahead of special Shawnee Mission school board contract meeting

Teachers rallied outside the Center for Academic Achievement ahead of a board of education meeting in November to lobby for a new contract. They’re planning a similar demonstration tonight.

Shawnee Mission teachers are planning to gather outside of the Center for Academic Achievement tonight to demonstrate as the board of education meets to discuss a possible unilateral three-year contract strongly opposed by the teachers union.

“There is no time for ambivalence…SHOW UP! Bring signs! Wear red,” reads the notice teachers posted on Facebook Wednesday. “Grab your friends and family and SHOW UP at the CAA. Make every board member look you in the eye when they vote AGAINST YOU!”
