School board, association exchange contract proposal

In a special session Feb. 7, the Alta-Aurelia Community School District board met with the Alta-Aurelia Education Association (A-AEA)  bargaining team to exchange initial proposals for the fiscal year 2018-19 contract.

The A-AEA “proposes the base wage increase to $31,330 to reflect a 4.49 percent increase in salary cost. The current salary schedule lanes and steps will still apply,” said bargaining team member Brian Christiansen, who read the proposed language. “The association purposes that all of the current contract language in the 2017-18 Alta Community schools master contract remain in place and be adopted for the newly created Alta-Aurelia Community School District.”
