What Do YOU Think About the Teachers Union Deal? (Poll)
Last week the school board approved a contract change and extension between the district and teachers union
Last Wednesday it was announced that both the school district and teachers union approved a new contract agreement, including increasing employees' share of healthcare and pay freezes. This could save the district over the next two years the district could save $425,000.
The new agreement increases the employees' share of their health-care premium from 6 percent to 10 percent, starting next school year. Teachers will get about a 2 percent raise next year, carried over from the previous contract, but will take a pay freeze for the 2013-14 school year.
This contract could be extended to 2014-15, including health-care concessions and the pay freeze, if the district believes it has "sufficient funds" based on the five-year forecast.
