Contract details still under discussion

MANDATA - Line Mountain School Board members are still discussing what information should be released on the district website from the teacher union's proposal.

Board President Troy Laudenslager said contract proposal details from the Line Mountain Education Association (LMEA) would be released Wednesday on the district's website, but the directors had not yet reviewed the information.

Once that happens, Laudenslager said additional details will be placed on the website.

Teachers have been working on an expired contract since June 2012, which was a one-year extension of a five-year contract that ended June 30, 2011, that guaranteed educators a 3-percent raise each year.
