I'll try to keep you up-to-date as the evening goes on.  I have contacts that I hope will keep me informed.

According to the SEA's Facebook page, teachers have already started signing in.

7 pm
From SEA Facebook page: Para contract has been approved by a voice vote.

7:15 p.m.

Debate on the certificated staff contract has started.

KUOW is reporting long lines at all 10 mics at Benaroya as teachers wait to speak their peace.  

8:04 pm
SEA has ratified all three contracts.  Standing vote was required but it was a clear majority.

Different colors are different constituencies in the bargaining unit. Each unit must have a quorum for a vote to occur. Additionally, each building must also have representation, so it can take a while to get to voting...

Waiting to hear...

It's an imperfect end to an imperfect process, but I am glad school will be starting on time.
