DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) _ The Dickinson Public School Board and an association representing teachers are at an impasse in contract negotiations for the next two school years.
The board offered $38,400 per year for new teachers, but the Dickinson Education Association declined the offer. The salary would have increased to $40,200 per year in the second year.
School Board President Kris Fehr says it's disappointing that this is where negotiations have ended up.
Education Association President Diana Stroud says she had no comment.
The issue will now move to the Governor's Education Factfinding Commission.
