SHARE UNION AND DISTRICT AGREE ON 4% RAISE FOR LOGAN TEACHERS

Negotiators from the Logan School District and teachers' union have agreed on a 4 percent raise for educators next year.

The negotiations package, announced Thursday morning in a special meeting, makes the district among the first five of the state's 40 districts to complete negotiations with teachers.The package includes continued funding of health-insurance benefits, an adjustment in the salary schedule for 25-year veteran teachers and changes to the district's family leave policy.

Both sides said they were pleased with the package. Assistant Superintendent M. Larry Petersen called the discussions "more of a team effort than a negotiating process."

"We have a board that has teachers' interests at the utmost level," said Susan Stephens, who headed the local teachers' negotiating teams. "We don't have to play games."
