Contract talks between the Juneau School District and the union representing teachers have reached an impasse.
The Juneau Education Association bargaining team and school administrators mutually agreed to seek mediation at a meeting on Saturday, according to a release from the district. The two sides have been trying to work out a new deal since January.
JEA represents nearly 400 teachers, counselors, librarians and specialists such as psychologists and speech, physical and occupational therapists.
The current three-year contract expires June 30th.
