The Nelsonville-York Board of Education has approved a new three-year contract with the Nelsonville-York Education Association.

The agreement includes annual raises in each of the three years, according to Supt. Mick McClelland.

Union members will receive a 4 percent raise in the first year and a 3 percent raise in each of the final two years of the contract.

“It has been on hold,” said McClelland of the raises over the past few years. “They have been a couple of years without a raise, they conceded that when we needed them to.”

There will be no changes with regard to insurance in the new contract.

“This is good for both sides,” said McClelland.

Following approval of the contract, the board approved the hiring of Colette Kussel as a high school science teacher.

The resignation of Thomas Riccardi, high school history teacher, was accepted for retirement purposes.
