Negotiations will resume on Monday in the Roxana School District between the members of the Roxana Education Association and the Roxana School Board.  Teachers have been working this school year without a new contract and have issued an intent to strike notice, but have agreed to meet again without a mediator.

The school board met last week and offered to sit down again with the teacher’s union on March 30.  The two sides have been in negotiations for about a year and remain at odds over contract language on several topics.  Teachers could have walked off the job this Thursday following their intent to strike notification with the district earlier this month.  The union rejected what the board called its final offer in a vote on March 13.  The school board has posted information on its offer on the district website, which you can view through this link:
