Redmond School District officials and the teachers union will try to hammer out a final contract today when the two sides meet. On the table is the District's latest proposal that cuts 28 positions and includes no pay increases, to close the District 8 budget shortfall. Originally the District proposed a 3.7% pay cut, that teachers opposed. Continued optimism about the Oregon economy has the District looking at $56 million more than anticipated, so School Board President Jim Erickson says they dropped the proposed salary cut. “That freed up a 50-50 offer instead of a 49-51 allocating in each of the two years. And that allowed the District to drop its’ 3.7% salary cut and offered 6 days lost, same as last year.” The two sides will meet today, and if an agreement can't be reached, again next Monday, June 13th.
