Following two days of collaborative mediation talks on November 6 and 7, the Anchorage School District and Anchorage Education Association have agreed to continue the mediation talks. Depending on the availability of the federal mediators, within the next two weeks the District is pleased to continue its work with the teachers’ union to reach a negotiated settlement.

Todd Hess, Chief of Human Resources, said, “We worked diligently and collaboratively during the last two days of federal mediation, making tremendous progress toward reaching an agreement.” ASD reports that it is much closer in reaching an agreement.
