Grace Education Association members staged a rally and picketed outside of a high school basketball game on Friday, Feb. 5. GEA members have been working without a contract this year. The school district has not declared a financial emergency, but has imposed a revised salary schedule, changed health insurance benefits, and hired an outside attorney who cost another Idaho school district tens of thousands of dollars because of his bad advice.
IEA President Sherri Wood and several IEA members from neighboring school districts attended the rally in support of the GEA. A fact finding session is scheduled in Grace on Friday, Feb. 19.
