Teacher contract details leaked

Although neither the District nor the teachers' union have released details of the tentative agreement on a new contract, KUOW's education beat reporter, Ann Dornfeld, has a copy of the agreement and reported these elements, each of which is a compromise on the primary areas of disagreement:

  • It's a two-year contract.
  • The pay raise will be 2% in the first year and 2.5% in the second year.
  • Test scores will be an element in teacher evaluations, but a smaller factor than currently.
  • Elementary school teachers will work an additional 30 minutes, but with some flexibility about when that time comes.
I don't have details about case loads for PTs, nurses, and counselors. I don't have any other details. I heard this on the radio; there's no story on the KUOW web site about this yet.
