The Community Consoli-dated Elementary District 181 Board met Oct. 21 in closed session, with teacher contract negotiations as one of the agenda items.
“The District 181 Board of Education and the Hinsdale-Clarendon Hills Teachers’ Association, the association that represents our 361 teachers, met last Wednesday to continue dialogue on a new agreement,” board President Bill Merchantz read from a statement before entering closed session. “This was a positive and highly productive session, and both parties are committed to reaching agreement on a fair, multiyear contract that serves the best interests of all District 181 stakeholders: our students, teachers and taxpayer community.”
Merchantz said an additional mediation session is set for Monday, Oct. 28, and informal communication between the parties will continue in the interim.
“As appropriate, we will provide timely updates on the status of negotiations via email and the district website,” Merchantz added. “As always, we thank you for your support of District 181, our students and teachers.” No action was taken at the meeting.
