A new state law to change the start times for schools starting this academic year served as cover for 6.7% raises for most of the Travis School District’s workforce.
The district and its teachers union came to an agreement Sept. 30.
Trustees on Tuesday approved a memorandum or understanding with the Travis Unified Teachers Association.
The agreement stems from Senate Bill 328, which changed the start times for schools by 15 minutes. The teachers union requested a renegotiation of salaries because of the additional time teachers would need to be at school.
