A tentative contract agreement has been reached between the North Winneshiek Education Association and the North Winneshiek School Board for the 2010-2011 school year.
The agreement calls for a total package increase of 4.08 percent, which includes salary and benefits. There will be one combined salary schedule beginning with the 2010-2011 school year. The Teacher Salary Supplement will be incorporated into the regular salary schedule to produce one base number which is $28,850. The school board and the teacher's association will use the new base number to negotiate in succeeding years. The new salary schedule will be paid from September 2010-August 2011.
The district will provide teachers with a $1,000 deductible health insurance plan which includes office and drug co-pays. Teachers will also continue to receive the following fringe benefits at district cost:
single dental insurance, life insurance, accidental death/dismemberment and long term disability.
The North Winneshiek School Board must approve this agreement at its May 10th regular meeting. The North Winneshiek Education Association must also officially ratify this agreement.
