The district and teachers union agreed to a guaranteed minimum 30 minutes of recess for elementary school students. Teachers had originally asked for 45 minutes and compromised on at least 30, said Rich Wood, spokesman for the Washington Education Association.
As for the rest of the contract:
Representatives from the union and district met most of the day Saturday and continued negotiations Sunday.
Negotiations will likely continue until 8 or 9 p.m. Sunday, said Phyllis Campano, Seattle Education Association vice president and bargaining team chair. The two parties will likely discuss equity, testing and compensation Sunday, among smaller issues, she said.
Oddly, the Times' business reporter wrote the story. I understand that contracts are part of a business but it seems like the education reporters would have already been covering the story.
