One-Year Contract Approved for Dist. 186 Teachers

Springfield teachers and the school board have approved a new one-year contract with no across-the-board pay raise.


The agreement contains a “soft freeze,” keeping most provisions of the union’s last contract in place.


Some teachers will see pay increases for longevity and experience, under the terms spelled out in that last contract.


But 40% of the district’s teachers won’t see any pay hike at all.


The contract also calls for the creation of committees to study three contentious issues… high school scheduling, prep time for elementary school teachers, and recruitment of minority educators and special ed teachers.


Bargaining will resume in January on a new contract that would start in the summer of 2014.
