A day after starting the school year, the North Penn School District is going to an arbitrator to resolve a contract fight over salary.The teacher's union has agreed to enter voluntary non-binding arbitration.

This means an independent proposal will be presented to both sides, which they can choose to accept or reject.

The teachers promise not to issue a strike notice during this process.
