Eagle Point School District Strike Settled

By Jim McCoy Wed 16th May NewsEagle Point School District

The Eagle Point School District says an agreement has been reached with striking employees.
     The district says schools are closed Wednesday and will resume
Thursday with regular teachers. Schools opened this week with
substitutes.
     The Eagle Point Education Association began the strike May 7.
Classes were canceled last week.
     The district near Medford has 328 employees, including 186
teachers, and a total of about 4,100 students.
     The two-year agreement still needs final approval from the
school board and union.
     The district says the agreement keeps teacher preparation time
at current levels and increases contributions to health insurance
coverage. The district agrees not to subcontract transportation
services while the issue is under study.
