Meade County Teachers At Impasse With District

Over the summer, negotiations between the Meade School District and its teachers reached an impasse on district salary structure. According to the Rapid City Journal, the Meade Education Association rejected the district’s contract offer due to its collectively paying teachers less than the previous year.

Teachers in the district have backed down on their request for an equitable salary structure for now, however, the MEA plans to challenge the school board and superintendent to compensate district teachers more fairly again in the spring.

The school board's final salary offer included a $550 raise for veteran teachers (5+ years of experience) a $350 raise for all others.
