Willapa Valley teachers get a contract

The Willapa Valley School District and teachers reached terms on teacher salaries. The contract was approved at the Willapa Valley School Board meeting on November 13. Signifying an end to a long and tense back and forth between the district and teachers.

Background

The school district and teachers began talks just before the end of the 2017-2018 school year with both sides unable to compromise. The tension carried over to the 2018-2019 school year with teachers returning to work without a contract. Early talks were often met with a stalemate and both sides at a disagreement. Instead of making students suffer and teachers taking to the picket line teachers decided to return to work without a contract in a good faith move that let the situation calm down and then resumed talks.

During the November 5 Raymond City Council meeting Council members grilled Mayor Tony Nordin about the fee for the week being raised to $2000 by new Theatre Manager Diane Ziel. Days after the meeting several council members informed the media that a deal had been reached: $1200 for the week.
