LYNDON, Vt. — The Caledonia North Supervisory Union has reached a teacher contract agreement with union members for the current school year.

The Caledonian-Record reports ( all five schools in the supervisory union ratified the contract with the Caledonia Education Association during a Tuesday meeting in Lyndon. A tentative agreement had previously been reached in August.

Increases for teachers who are on and off of the schedule are included in the contract. Teacher contributions to premium costs for VEHI Gold health insurance plans have risen from 15 percent to 20 percent.

Union spokeswoman Lisa Lessard says teachers are pleased with the contract agreement. Lessard says the pay increase was needed in order to compete with other districts and retain teachers.
