Still no decision in Nampa teacher negotiations

NAMPA, Idaho (KBOI) - Teachers and school administrators in Nampa met for another round of negotiations on teacher contracts Wednesday night.

Last week, teachers rejected 14 furlough days proposed by the district. Instead, they wanted no furlough days, and a 1.67 percent base salary pay raise for certified teaching professionals.

This week, the district rejected the pay raises because they would add an additional $2 million to the budget deficit. They also proposed two different insurance plans for teachers. One of the plans would have 12 furlough days included in it, the other would have 11.

The Nampa Education Administration has now asked the district to consider four furlough days as a compromise. Negotiations will continue on June 27 and June 28, from 9-11 a.m.

Teacher contracts for the 2013-2014 school year must be sent out by July 1.
