The Oil City Area school board agreed this week to a new contract for the district’s teachers — even though the present five-year deal does not expire until next June.
But, citing an uncertain future for school funding in Pennsylvania, the approval was given for just a two-year contract this time around. The pact covers just under 150 teachers.
The contract contains no wage increases in the first year, but will provide for salary hikes of just under eight-tenths of one percent in the 2015-2016 school year.
School district administrators received their wage adjustments in June.
