As dumb as it seems to sign a new contract with a the Budget Repair Bill still hanging out there and a referendum on the horizon, it has been done. At least 99% of the way. Some of the key points are a pay scale freeze (the steps still exist), health insurance deductibles, and pension payments made by the teachers themselves.
There is still fat to be trimmed both amongst the teachers' ranks and at the ASC, but it's a start. Hopefully, some wisdom will be injected in this district. A guy can hope can't he?
