NJ school districts where teachers are working without contracts

At the start of the school year, 141 districts in New Jersey are still in negotiation for teachers’ contracts. That’s actually well down from last year, but still means roughly a quarter of districts are still negotiating salary and other benefits with their teachers. In the meantime, districts operate on prior contracts. The data comes out of the NJ School Boards Association every September.
