District approves employee agreements

At Monday night's regular school board meeting, District 206 reached contract agreements with four employee groups.

The groups included principals, cabinet members, other administrators and confidential employee groups for the 2008-09 and 2009-10 school years.

Judy Backhaus, human resource director for the district, presented the new agreements to the District 206 board members at their Monday night meeting.

Work agreements for all four groups reflect salary schedule improvements and minor financial adjustments in health insurance equal to 4.25 percent this year and 4.25 percent for the 2009-10 school year.

A total financial increase for the two-year period amounts to an overall increase of 8.5 percent for each group - consistent with other district employee group settlements, according to Backhaus.

The two-year agreements replace the current contracts that expired June 30 and will conclude June 30, 2010.
