The Bend Education Association (BEA) held a rally Monday night for educators trying to bargain for a new contract.
The rally, in front of the Bend-La Pine School District office, was expected to bring dozens.
The school district met Monday with the BEA, the organization representing the educators, to work on a new agreement.
According to the BEA, educators have been working without a contract since the summer without progress.
They’re calling for improvement in class sizes, workloads, safety, and a fair cost of living adjustment.
The district says it has offered a proposal and is waiting for the association’s response.
