Dryden teachers, district reach agreement

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports that the Dryden Central School District and Dryden Faculty Association have reached a tentative four-year agreement. (Because of the delay in reaching a contract, it covers from July 2002 to June 2006.) Teachers will vote on the proposed contract September 2nd, and it sounds like there's more optimism this contract will pass than the last:

Mary Ellen Bossack, president of the DFA, said "the association would be surprised" if the newest agreement wasn't approved...."There's a real sense of being valued," Bossack said. "It's not as though the issues just disappeared. We worked very hard to get to this point."

The Ithaca School District is examining athletic eligibility rules, and the Journal's editorial looks at the airport's future.
