The Columbia School Board has also approved a plan to allow public school teachers in the district the ability to have a specific organization represent them in negotiating their salaries. School Board members voted unanimously to approve the representation at a budget meeting Monday night.

For representation , teachers can choose the Columbia Missouri National Education Association, or maintain the current system, which involves an informal mode of communication between teachers and administrators.
