The Keystone Oaks School District and the Keystone Oaks Education Association (KOEA) have reached an agreement on a one year extension to the contract that expired on June 30, 2016. The agreement was approved by KOEA and the Board of School Directors in meetings that took place on April 11, 2017.
The one year agreement is retroactive to July 1, 2016 and expires on June 30, 2017.
Details of the approved contract include:
“We are pleased that the district and KOEA were able to reach a short-term agreement that puts the students first and is fair for both sides,” Board President Matt Cesario said. “We look forward to working with the teachers, counselors and nurses to reach a longer term agreement that is sustainable and continues to provide a high quality education for Keystone Oaks students.”
