The Bend-La Pine School District and the Bend-La Pine teachers are negotiating a new contract. They will be meeting again on Thursday.

It’s about pay, benefits and working conditions for certified staff — teachers and others, such as speech pathologists and nurses. It’s about ensuring the district can attract top staff, staff can afford to live here and that the working conditions enable them to deliver excellent teaching. It’s also about taxpayer money and how it is spent.

Whatever we are paying school teachers and support staff is not enough. I'm happy to pay higher taxes to pay our teachers more.
