At the urging of School Board member Darren Belisle, the board passed a final teachers agreement for 2016 to 2018.

The two-year contract includes a four percent increase to salaries each year, a per diem raise, and added the spirit squad to the extracurricular salaries.

Also included was an increase of the volleyball coach’s hours and a decrease in the wrestling coach’s hours.

“I’m pleased with this agreement,” board member Stuart Brown said. “Like I said before, I know we have the best teachers in the state. I’m glad we have the four percent.”
