MONTROSE, Colo. (AP) - Representatives from Montrose County School District and Uncompahgre Valley Education Association have decided that teachers in the school district will not be getting raises this year.

The Montrose Daily Press reports (https://bit.ly/1GAwmrC) the decision was one among many that came after two days of negotiations last week.

Interim superintendent, Kirk Henwood, says the largest impact on funding has been declining enrollment.

The district plans to form a joint study committee to review how evaluations impact the employment status of teachers and staff. There will also be a committee to reduce the number of sick days allotted per year to employees.

The district will set aside $316,000 to cover a 6 percent insurance premium increase, as well as $124,000 for an employee stipend in November.
