Minneapolis Teachers Approve New Contract

| No Comments

MPR reports that Minneapolis teachers approved a new two-year contract with the school district on Saturday.

83 percent of the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers voted to approve the new contract. The two-year agreement adds four more days to the school year and fifteen more minutes to each official school day, which increases annual salaries by just over $3,000.

"We're excited," union president Lynn Nordgren told the Star Tribune. "We have a lot of good things that will be good for students, for teachers, for schools and for the district overall."

The school board is scheduled to vote on the new contract, which is projected to increase district costs by $17.1 million, on Tuesday.
