Westerville Teachers, School Board Ratify Contract
The Westerville Teachers Union and the School Board have ratified a new three year contract agreement. The deal includes 2 percent raises in the third year. It also includes the resumption of step raises in the third year. The contract brings back eight teachers who had been fired amid budget cuts, and it brings back recess aides, allowing teachers time to meet one-on-one with students. Union officials had warned members of the possibility of a strike.
