Lawrence Teachers and School Board Reach Tentative Settlement

lawrence high schoolThe Lawrence School Board and the Lawrence teachers’ union have reached a tentative agreement for a new contract, school officials announced this afternoon.

The agreement comes a few weeks after the Lawrence Board of Education and the Lawrence Township Education Association negotiations teams met with a state-appointed fact finder.

Both the union and the school board have agreed to the recommendations made by the fact finder and have reached a tentative settlement. Specifics of the new three-year agreement will be made public once the teachers ratify the contract and the school board formally approves it.

Teachers have been working without a contract since June 30 of 2014, and have been working under the terms and conditions of that contract since then.

“The negotiations committee is thrilled to arrive at consensus with the LTEA on a contract that values the wonderful work of our staff, as well as the needs of our children,  taxpayers, and the Lawrence Township community,” said Laura Waters, a school board member
and chair of the negotiations committee.
