ROXANA — The Roxana Board of Education and Roxana Education Association reached a tentative agreement March 31 on a new labor contract for teachers.
The union membership will take a ratification vote on April 8. Both parties mutually agreed on the remaining language and the terms for a four-year contract. The average increase on the base salary is 3.1 percent and the vacancy language was resolved with compromise from both sides.
“It was a lengthy process and everyone involved is to be commended on their commitment to reach an amicable solution that is a positive outcome for the district,” a joint press release from the union and School Board states. “The Roxana School District is committed to continually providing students with the best educational opportunities and looks forward to moving forward collectively with all stakeholders.”
