    DEA members- I wrote each board member a note and sent it 3/1/13. I wish to share the contents. Dear Mr. Balser: After reading the two proposals of the Dixon School Board of Education and the Dixon Teachers Association, I need to write you this note. Some of the purposed language coming from the board is very regative to say the least. Whenever the teachers purposed new language(including the reasoning behind it) the board would just reject the idea without any consideration. Whenever the board would introduce new language,, it would be regressive, to what was already stated in the present contract. For example, cutting the money and expecting more time from the teachers. Do you think this is “bargaining in good faith”? Granted, I believe both parties of this contract need to compromise to attain a fair outcome. But in the process, try to become more understanding of the total impact. We need our young people to be attracted to the teaching profession for our future. We need to settle this contract ASAP for the people of our community of Dixon. Thank you for your service to our community. Sincerely, Gracie Grove, taxpayer
    Good luck, teachers!

    Sorry for the typo (fashion). Guess I need to use spell check and stop typing so fast.
