With the Legislature's delay in finalizing a budget, local teachers had to wait to receive their contracts for the 2005-2006 school year.
Now that a state budget has been set, teachers will be receiving their contracts this week.
"I'm sure the teachers will be pleased to get their contracts and to know that they can continue their planning for next August," said Cheryl Thomas, assistant principal at Meridian High School.
Ordinarily, the contract deadline for teachers would have been April 15.
