Medford Teachers Voting on Contract

MEDFORD TEACHERSMEDFORD, Ore. – On Thursday, Medford educators are voting on the new teacher contract.

MEA officials say teachers were given a ballot on Thursday, and must hand in their vote by 5 p.m. Friday. They say the votes will then be tallied and triple checked.

Building representatives were given the ballots on Monday, but could not hand them out until the official voting day. If teachers vote to approve the contract, the school board is expected to ratify the contract during their meeting on Monday.

School officials voted earlier this week. Both sides say they expect the contract to move forward.
