The two sides in a contract dispute between Alton teachers and the school district met on Monday, but details of the session are not available. Last month the membership of the Alton Education Association resoundingly rejected a contract offer by the Alton School District. Monday’s bargaining session resulted in what the Association calls its last and final offer.
Alton School District Director of Financial Services Chris Norman tells The Big Z the school board will consider that offer.

The head of the teacher’s union has said the members are very aware a strike is possible if an agreement is not reached with the next set of negotiations. Teachers have been working without a contract since the start of the school year.
