Principals and administrators in District 97 are still without new contracts.

The vote to approve new contracts was scheduled for Tuesday’s regular board meeting, but Supt. Constance Collins asked the board to table the vote because some administrators and principals up for new contracts are on vacation and that she could not reach them about details before Tuesday.

Collins said the board is considering having the vote at its next regular meeting, Aug. 26, or at special session before then.

The principals’ contracts expired June 30.
