Teachers in the Logan School District will receive a 3.2 percent salary increase for the 1991-92 school year under a new contract ratified with the school board.
Superintendent Gary Carlston said adjustments for lane changes and increments also are provided in the contract approved Wednesday night, and there will be no reduction in insurance benefits."Usage of medical insurance was extremely low during the last year, and we experienced only a 2 percent premium increase, which came as a great relief after last year's 25 percent increase," he said.
Dave Reynolds, president of the Logan Education Association, said although teachers would have liked a larger pay hike, "we understand the district can only give what the Legislature allocates in weighted pupil units."
He said teachers appreciate the "good faith" negotiations with the district.
"We don't get the games with negotiators like teachers do in some other districts," he said.
