Teachers strike averted

After a March 25 mediation session that began and ended early in the morning, both the teachers unions and the Salem-Keizer School District (SKPS) have finally come to a tentative agreement. 

SKEA packs the board room in protest to mediation

At the “Pack the Board Room” event by the Salem-Keizer Education Association (SKEA), members rallied outside of the board room on Commercial Street to show the Salem-Keizer Public Schools (SKPS) that they would not be silent. After rallying, as many members as possible went inside the room for a public-described “heavy” SKPS school board meeting.
