YME to ask legislators to consider forgiveness for penalty
GRANITE FALLS -- Yellow Medicine East is among the schools which failed to reach a teacher contract agreement by the state deadline, and is now facing a $25 per pupil penalty.
With a student enrollment of slightly more than 1,000, the penalty will cost the district an estimated $25,000.
Superintendent Al Stoeckman said the district will ask local legislators if the state would deal with the district's impasse as a special situation, and forgive the penalty.
