The Vallejo City Unified School District has reached a tentative contract agreement with its classified employees.
The agreement, which the school board will consider Wednesday, provides a 2.5 percent salary increase retroactive to July 1, 2013, among other provisions.
In addition to the employee contract, the board also is expected to review a federal agreement with the district concerning student disciplinary procedures.
The tentative agreement could end a year of salary, benefit and working condition negotiations that have been going on with its nonteaching employees, who are members of the California School Employees Association, Chapter 199. The district also has been negotiating with the Vallejo Education Association.
