Teachers Contracts Okay'ed

The La Crosse School District is one of several in the area that have agreed to a new contract with their teachers......and they are working with other bargaining units to settle theirs as well.

The teacher contract extension would be for another year and includes a pay freeze. It also has increases to retirement and health care payments that are similar to those in Governor Scott Walkers budget repair bill.

District Business Manager, Janet Rossiter, says the contracts help make up the more than four million dollars in lost revenue from Governor Walkers budget proposal.

Other school districts in the area that have seen contract extensions for their teachers include those in Onalaska, Holmen and Sparta.
