Fears that the new school board majority will play hardball with the teachers union surfaced on the first day of contract negotiations Monday, as the union called for the district to extend the current agreement.
“Extending that contract would put some rumors to bed and allow staff to focus on better things, like our students,” said Lisa Elliot, executive director of the Jefferson County Education Association.
More than 50 people showed up to hear the negotiations, which are being conducted in public for the first in Jefferson County.
