Mpls. School District Reaches Contract Agreement With Teachers

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After three days of negotiation, Minneapolis Public Schools has reached a contract agreement with its teachers late Saturday night.

The specifics of the contract have not yet been released, but the district released the following statement:

“We believe this contract will improve our overall effectiveness by investing in teachers and students who are at the core of our work.”

A vote is expected next month.

The St. Paul Public School district avoided a strike with its teachers eight days ago after agreeing to new wages, additional staffing and limiting class sizes.

They’ll vote on their new contract on Monday.
