Schools chief for SW Ohio diocese says most teachers have signed contract restricting behavior

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, May 12, 2014 4:58 PM EDT

The Catholic schools superintendent for the Cincinnati Archdiocese says he believes the majority of teachers have signed a new contract specifying that homosexual lifestyles could cost them their jobs, along with other contract violations.

The contract has divided some of the region's Catholics. The public battle has included a protest march, online petitions and a dozen billboards opposing the document.

School Superintendent Jim Rigg estimated Monday that over two-thirds of teachers in schools owned by the archdiocese or sponsored by its parishes have signed next year's contract. Some teachers haven't been offered contracts yet, but will in the coming weeks.

The schools' more than 2,200 teachers must sign to remain employed.

Rigg says he has heard of only a handful of teachers who indicated they will not sign it.
