PRINCETON: School board reaches agreement with two unions, but not the teachers

Princeton’s school board has reached agreement on new contracts with two of its employee bargaining units, but not its teaching staff.

The board announced after a special meeting Wednesday night that the unions representing the support staff and the principals, assistant principals and supervisors had agreed to three-year contracts, according to a board statement issued after the meeting. Their current contracts expire on June 30.

The board and the teachers union remain in negotiations, although the sides failed to reach an agreement at their last meeting on May 4. The state-appointed mediator has referred the matter for fact-finding to the New Jersey Public Employees Relations Commission.



He’s Good 'Company'
Justin Guarini is starring in a Sondheim classic at Bucks County Playhouse
   IT’S hard to believe it’s been 13 years since a fresh- faced Justin Guarini was battling it out with Kelly Clarkson in the finals of American Idol in the show’s debut season, but it was all the way back in 2002 when the singer first caught the attention of America.

   What a lot of people don’t know is that Mr. Guarini almost didn’t appear on the show, having been offered a role on Broadway in The Lion King.

   ”I was at a real crossroads back then. I could do my first Broadway show or do this TV show that no one ever heard of and go out to Hollywood and sing,” he says. “I had a week to decide and so I went out to California and kept advancing so I had to thank them for the opportunity and I stuck with the show.”
