IRON MOUNTAIN Settling a contract with its employees is one of the concerns expressed by the Iron Mountain School Board of Education at Monday’s meeting, along with continuing to address the district’s deficit status with the state.

Parents, students, teachers, and Michigan Education Association officials all crowded into the school’s media center to express their concerns to the board about the lack of a contract with the teachers and where they felt reductions could be made in the budget.

Introduced at the meeting was the board’s decision to go Fact Finding as a way of coming to an agreement on the contract.
