Jefferson County teachers rally over pay dispute
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — Teachers held a rally Monday night after they said they reached an impasse regarding salary negotiations.
They accuse the Jefferson County School Board of going back on its promise to give them pay raises.
The teachers marched outside the school board meeting and they used some tough words aimed at the board members.
Inside the school board meeting, the two sides could agree on one thing. Talkss over the teacher raises were officially at an impasse teachers say that could affect students.
Teachers say they’re unsure if the rally made any difference in their fight.
FOX31 Denver contacted the Jeffco School Board to get its side of the issue, but phone calls and requests for comment via email were not returned.
