No agreement was reached during yesterday's negotiating session between the Redmond School District and the teacher's union. The School District must make cuts to close its $8 million budget shortfall. During Monday’s session, the two sides exchanged proposals, but reached no agreement. Judy Newman, the President of the Redmond Education Association says the process has been frustrating: “Last night was time I think we we're disappointed. And I think we need a time, a day, to kind of cool off. I am optimistic that we will all remain professional, and that we can come to the table and come to a consensus that will help us reach the budget deficit that they need. We feel that we have given them a proposal, where they can balance their budget.” No further bargaining sessions have been scheduled, but Newman hopes after school finishes up Wednesday, more will be. Some of the sticking points, include deferring cost of living increases and increases for experienced teachers and cutting more student contact days.
