Nampa SD To IEA: Get Lost

A day after the Idaho Education Association alleged that the Nampa School District was “acting illegally” when it re-worded teachers' contracts to include a provision under which the district could request voluntary furloughs, Nampa's legal counsel responded that it was none of the IEA's business. “The district is not required to discuss with the union (IEA) the acceptance of voluntary furlough days on behalf of certified leachers,” wrote Nampa School District attorney William Yost. “You are wrong in your conclusion and in your representation that teachers have been 'coerced.'” This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that Yost said there was “no legal authority” to support a position that the district can't amend contracts “on a voluntary basis”/George Prentice, Boise Weekly.

Question: Is it the business of the Idaho Education Association that the Nampa School District is requesting voluntary furlough days?
