A tentative agreement has been apparently reached 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 issued an intent to strike notice last month, but a message on the district’s website indicates a deal has been struck.

According to the website, it is a four-year deal with an average increase on the base salary of 3.1%.  Both sides compromised on vacancy language.  The Roxana Education Association will take a ratification vote April 8. The two sides had been in negotiations for about a year.
