Tracy Linscott delivered the proposal this afternoon to Superintendent John Krupinski.
Teachers were willing to return to class immediately, resume negotiations, and let a mutually agreed-upon arbitrator settle unresolved issues at the end of the school year.
School Superintendent John Krupinski and Board President David Frazee have not returned multiple calls.
