The North Dakota Fact Finding Commission will be called in to try and settle a contract dispute between teachers and the Grand Forks School District. The school board declared an impasse in negotiations last night. The two sides have been unable to reach a deal on a new two-year contract. School Board President Doug Carpenter says there’s not enough money to meet teacher demands.

Carpenter says both sides will get a chance to make their case to the commission. He says the process could take six weeks or longer.

The district is looking to freeze salaries next year in light of no new state dollars in K-12 funding.
