USD 383 teachers get a raise

By The Mercury

Manhattan-Ogden USD 383 reached a tentative agreement on Thursday with local representatives of the teachers’ union, the National Education Association.

The contract was agreed upon after five months of discussion about the 2014-15 school year.

Some of the agreement’s highlights included an increase of $450 in base salaries, due process procedures, a 2-percent compensation package increase and a revised teacher evaluation system.

“The association and board negotiating teams shared many of the same concerns, and this assisted the teams in working through several difficult issues and arriving at a tentative agreement that will be good for the district, the students, and the teachers,” USD 383 Associate Superintendent Robert Seymour said.

The Board of Education will vote on the agreement following a ratification vote by teachers scheduled for Aug. 7.
