The Seattle School Board will vote whether to approve the 2015-18 Collective Bargaining Agreements between Seattle Public Schools and the Seattle Education Association, at the regularly scheduled board meeting next Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015.

Board action is necessary because state law requires that the School Board fix salaries for all district employees and approve benefit and leave policies. (RCW 28A.400.200; RCW 28A.400.300). In addition, Board Policy No. 5020 Collective Bargaining, requires that collective bargaining agreements be approved by the School Board.

SCAM ALERT! Phone scammers spoof King County Sheriff phone number to get you to pay

The King County Sheriff's office is alerting the public to a phone scam being attempted in our area. They say a high volume of fraudulent calls are being made, allegedly from the Sheriff's office claiming there is a warrant out for your arrest for now showing up for jury duty or nonpayment of back taxes. They state clearly "This is a scam!"

The Sheriff’s Office does not solicit for funds over the phone under any circumstances.

Criminals are able to use false or “spoofed” numbers to make it appear that the call is coming from the Sheriff’s Office phone number, or from the Courts.

If someone contacts you and tells you there is a warrant out for your arrest because you missed jury duty or that you owe back taxes, this is a scam. Discontinue the call immediately.

In this scam the caller says that they are from the King County Sheriff’s Office, or from the Courts of King County, stating that because you missed jury duty and there is a warrant for your arrest. They will tell you to pay hundreds of dollars to avoid being arrested. They use high pressure tactics to get you panicked and are very professional sounding. This is a scam!!!
