EDGARD, La. (AP) - The St. John Association of Educators has signed off on a one-year contract approved last week by the St. John the Baptist Parish School Board.
The Times-Picayune reports that the union gave its approval this week to the agreement, which is virtually identical to the current contract which expires June 30.
The union in May had asked for a five-year renewal of the agreement but some board members resisted, citing the uncertainty of how recently passed state education-reform laws would affect the contract.
