Teacher’s contract agreement goes to board vote tonight
Teachers in the South San Francisco Unified School District could be a step closer to having a contract when the board votes on ratifying the tentative agreement tonight. The two sides went to impasse but came to a tentative agreement April 29 after meeting with a state mediator several times. The tentative agreement increases teacher salaries by 7 percent this year and 1.5 percent the following year.
The school district would also pay for any increased costs for health benefits over the next two years.
