Dixon school board approves 4-year teacher's contract

In a 7-0 vote last night, the Dixon school board approved a new 4-year contract with the teacher's association.

The union ratified the deal on Tuesday.

Key issues during the negotiations included money and insurance coverage. Teachers will receive a 2 percent raise this current school year. They will also see the 2 percent increase in the next 2 years and 1 percent in the final year of the contract.

The union will also have higher payments for health insurance in the new agreement.

The 168 teachers in the Dixon school district walked off their jobs on February 28th. The strike lasted 13 days overall. Classes were canceled for a total of 9 days.

Classroom size along with textbooks being used by students were also issues discussed during negotiations.
