School District Won’t Appeal Ruling to Rehire Teachers

TUNKHANNOCK — Newswatch 16 has learned that officials with the Tunkhannock Area School District have decided to give up their fight to lay off some teachers.

At a meeting tonight school district officials announced they would not appeal an arbitrator’s ruling that they must rehire 32 educators.

More than a year ago the district announced layoffs but the teacher’s union successfully proved that district officials violated a signed agreement prohibiting layoffs.

The teachers are now back on the job in the Tunkhannock Area School District.
