A Blair County School District is getting a budget concession from its teachers.
The Williamsburg Community school district’s proposed $7.2 million budget includes no tax increase, an operational deficit of $158,000 and as of last night, a wage freeze for teachers in the 2012-13 school year.
The three year deal with the Williamsburg Education Association was passed unanimously by the board.
For the upcoming school year there will be no pay increase and no change to medical insurance premium shares for the district’s 38 teachers.
In the the following two years, teachers pay will increase by 3 percent each year with monthly medical insurance premium shares increase gradually.
The board plans to use past surpluses to balance the budget but haven’t ruled out possible cuts which could be addressed at its June 19 meeting.
