KODIAK -- Support staff have settled on terms of a three-year contract with the Kodiak Island Borough School District.
The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports about 200 members of the Kodiak Island Educational Support Association will not receive raises until the 2013-14 school year. Then, the raise will be 1.8 percent.
The association had initially sought a 6 percent raise the first year and 5 percent the next two.
Also this year, the borough didn't decide on a new teacher's contract, deciding instead to extend the union's existing contract for a year.
The school district entered the year facing a $3.5 million deficit. That fell to a $1 million shortfall after contributions from the state and borough.
