Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to:

require teachers to enter into contracts of three years or fewer with public school districts; and

prohibit teachers from organizing or collectively bargaining regarding the design and implementation of the teacher evaluation system?

Decisions by school districts regarding provisions allowed or required by this proposal and their implementation will influence the potential costs or savings impacting each district.
