West Central School Board Reaches Agreement with Teacher’s Assoc.

West Central School Superintendent Charles Mellon

The West Central School Board came to an agreement with the Teacher’s Association last week. Superintendent Charles Mellon said the board reviewed the contract during their recent meeting.

“It’s the extension of a contract that was set for five years,” said Mellon. “We dealt with some insurance benefit increases as well as paying those teachers a stipend that are at the top of the schedule who would not be receiving an increment, so to speak.”

Mellon indicated that this would be the last of this type of contract.

“The state has made some drastic changes where contract language will only deal with salaries and benefits,” he explained. “We’ve begun our evaluation process and that figures into salary increases.”

The board approved the agreement with the figures discussed.
