New Richmond teachers not the only ones without contract
As negotiations between the teachers' union and the New Richmond School District continue, School Board member Chris Skoglund remains optimistic.
"We are still making progress," Skoglund said. "I am definitely pleased that communications are still good between the District and the teachers."
At this point the District has presented the teachers' union with wage proposals and the groups are discussing how to address the rising cost of health care as well as retirement issues.
