The Altamont Education Association has filed notice of intent to strike if an agreement on a new contract is not reached soon.

The notice was filed with state and local education officials as of Tuesday, the 10th.  The teachers have been working without a contract since August 15.

A meeting between the AEA, which represents teachers in the Altamont district, and the Altamont Board of Education with a federal mediator is scheduled for Wednesday, the 18th.  Both parties have submitted their final offers to the Illinois Education Labor Relations Board.

The Altamont school board holds its regular monthly meeting on Monday night.
