• TEACHER PAY will be a key issue in mediations next week between the school district and the union representing teachers. At issue is whether a state law raising starting teacher salaries gives school districts flexibility in using part of the funding to increase pay for current teachers to the new base.

County commissioners have already approved the portion of the project in unincorporated Polk, and Lakeland’s Planning and Zoning Board takes up the portion within city limits on Tuesday.
