There's a new contract for teachers in the Wood River Hartford School District.  After months of negotiations, the district and union negotiating teams approved a three year contract and union members approved the pact on Monday by an overwhelming majority.

The vote by the Wood River Education Association was 71-3 in favor of the proposal from the Wood River Hartford School District.  The two sides had been without a deal since the last contract expired in June and this three year agreement is retroactive taking the union through the 2017-18 school year.
