Teachers Union, TF School District, Reach Agreement
Negotiations between the Twin Falls Education Association and the Twin Falls School Board are complete and both sides seem satisfied. The negotiations wrapped up this week and resulted in six days being added back into the school calendar. The Times News reports the teachers and students will now have four more days in the classroom in this coming school year and the teachers will have two more work days. The school district also agreed to pay the increased costs of insurance benefits. School Superintendent Wiley Dobbs said he felt both sides did their best in the negotiations. Both the Twin Falls School Board and the education association must still ratify the agreements by June 22nd.
