Times-Herald staff report Posted:
Vallejo teachers could at last see a raise.
School board members will take up the issue at Wednesday’s regular meeting, two weeks after first publicly disclosing the new tentative contract between the Vallejo Education Association and the Vallejo City Unified School District.
The agreement, ratified by teachers earlier this month, calls for a 2.5 percent wage increase. The raise is in line with those that the board has already given to its classified employees and to management.
Teachers have not gotten a raise since before the state took over the district in 2004.
Also on the agenda is the approval of the Facilities Master Plan to begin the process of updating the facilities to meet the new programs that have been adopted by the district. The plan is a culmination of work done in the summer and fall of 2013, which incorporated input from staff and community members from all of the 25 sites.
