Labor and management came to an agreement in Voorheesville, as the teachers’ union and school district signed a five-year agreement; teachers had been working without a contract for 18 months. 

Tara Molloy-Grocki is the new president of the Guilderland Teachers’ Association. She replaces Erin McNamara, who started in the post in 2014.

The Guilderland Teachers’ Association third annual back-to-school barbecue was held at Tawasentha Park on Sept. 8. Donations collected at the event were to be distributed to Capital District first responders.
