The Altamont Board of Education and the Altamont Educators Association have reached a contract agreement.
Negotiations between the two groups wasn’t always the easiest.
At one point both sides had to agree to a one year contract and start over just to keep things going.
This time around though the two sides were able to go to the table and come to an agreement in less than two months.
One of the biggest sticking points to the negotiations has been a pay raise for teachers.
As the agreement stands now, teachers will receive a 1.7% step increase in pay.
