Anchorage School District (includes Librarians) Have Reached Tentative 3-Year Contract

August 17, 2006. Anchorage Daily News Reports:

Bargaining teams for the Anchorage School District and its teacher union have reached a tentative three-year contract...
The deal came after a marathon 15-hour bargaining session Wednesday, with the teams toeing a union-set deadline that no talks would be scheduled after that, since teachers returned to schools today. Classes begin Tuesday.

"I’m very pleased that teachers can now report back to their first day in the classrooms with their primary focus on students," said Ron Fuhrer, president of the teachers’ Anchorage Education Association...
The union has some 3,400 members, including teachers, school counselors, nurses, librarians and others who work directly with students.
