Standing room only at Lexington School's Board of Education meeting Wednesday night. Nearly 16,000 hours have been worked by Lexington Teachers, going above and beyond their contracts to serve the district, board and students. A representation of these hours was shown in the form of a canned goods donation at Lexington's Board of Education meeting Wednesday evening.

Teachers have been tracking the hours they've worked outside of their contractual work day's since the beginning of August through October 8th, when their "work to rule" policy was put in place. Teacher's Assocation President, Rebecca Bigley says it's also a symbol of confidence and hope that the LTA and Board can work together and reach a fair contract soon.

Representatives for the Teachers Association and Board met face-to-face for the second time last week. After 5 hours of negotiations, LTA'S consultant, Linda Repko stated " we are pleased progress was made on some of the issues during the bargaining session and we hope progress continues when the two teams return to the table with the Federal Mediator on October 28th"

Superintendent, Dan Ziegelhofer says the Board was also pleased with the result.  Lexington Teacher's Association say they require three things in their contract; Respect by the board, Ability to Retain and Recruit the best teachers for the school system.
