Teachers win arbitration ruling against Willmar Public Schools


WILLMAR - The Willmar School District may have to adjust the way it schedules some of its teachers under a state arbitration ruling filed this week.

The district could file an appeal in court. Otherwise, the arbitration ruling will stand.

Three elementary reading teachers filed a grievance over the way they were scheduled to test and monitor student progress in the district's Response to Intervention program in the 2012-13 school year.
