Residents are encouraged to attend a "Town Meeting" hosted by the District 46 School Board at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11 at Grayslake Middle School to hear and discuss the contract proposals of the teachers' union and board.
There will also be discussion of the effects each proposal would have on the district's deficit budget and along with an update on district finances.
Some progress was made at the last bargaining session between the school board and teachers' union on Nov. 28, but a contract agreement has yet to be reached.
The union's Jan. 16 strike date still stands.
No future negotiating sessions have been scheduled, said Jim Pergander, business agent for the Lake County Federation of Teachers Local 504, but it's likely the federal mediator will attempt to get both sides back to the table after the holidays.
