Redmond Schools & Teachers Hoping for Agreement


Redmond School District still struggles to balance next year's budget. Increased state funding means Redmond will get more money than originally thought. Redmond Schools Director of Operations, Mike McIntosh, says the administration and union now have to agree on how to spend the money.  “When we get an extra million from the Ways and Means Committee, we though the first thing we should do is add back students days. It's a win-win. Win for the community because students will get back in school and teachers will get paid for those days, so its also a win for them.” But the teachers union voted on Monday to use the $1-million toward teacher salaries, so workers wouldn't have to take a planned 3.7% pay cut. Instead, they want to cut ten days from the school year. The two sides will continue to meet, to try and reach an agreement.
