The Oskaloosa School Board approved a tentative contract agreement with its teachers union at a special meeting Tuesday (3/30). Oskaloosa School Superintendent Paula Wright talks about the new deal.
“It’s about a 2.6% salary increase for teaching staff. I think both sides felt like it was a win-win.”
Also on Tuesday, the Oskaloosa School Board awarded a contract to build new music rooms and other classrooms at the High School and Elementary School.
“They (the bids) did come in under budget, so we did approve an $8 million renovation construction project with City Construction out of Iowa City. They will begin gearing up for construction beginning as soon as school is dismissed.”
Construction at both schools is expected to be finished in August 2022.
