For the third straight school year, teachers in the Anchorage School District might yet again start a another school year without a new contract.
"We're in the precarious position of possibly starting school again without a contract and that is a little bit disheartening," said Anchorage Education Association President Tom Klaameyer. "I'm cautiously optimistic that some progress can be made, but I can say that our members are pretty disheartened that this isn't done."
Teachers' last contract didn't get ratified until February. It expired June 30.
