Unionized teachers in the Waverly School District are weighing their next move in the wake of Monday’s abruptly ended school board meeting.  The  teachers are now in their sixth month without a contract.

Union crisis chairperson Gini Larson calls the board’s sudden exit “dismissive,” though board members say they legally called a motion to adjourn.  The union is fighting for set class sizes, a less arduous advancement scale and changes to teacher insurance contributions.  Larson says she believes the community itself will advance the teachers’ cause.
