Crestwood Appealing Ruling Over Teaching Vacancy

April 14, 2018 GMT

WILKES-BARRE — The Crestwood School District is appealing a March arbitration order to fill a vacant teaching job at Rice Elementary School. The district filed the appeal in Luzerne County Court and claimed arbitrator Mark Lamont exceeded his jurisdiction with his decision. The arbitration ruling is the result of the Crestwood teachers union filing a grievance in February 2017. The dispute involves a decision to eliminate a Rice Elementary teaching position vacated by a retirement in 2016. — MICHAEL P. BUFFER
