Teachers and district reach agreement on salaries – Palo Alto Daily Post



By the Daily Post staff

The teachers union and Palo Alto school district administrators have reached a two-year agreement on compensation that will raise pay by 3% starting this summer and another 3% for the 2021-22 school year — and give teachers a one-time 2% bump.

The district’s 800 teachers make between $66,395 and $133,972 annually, according to the union’s contract.

The tentative agreement reached last night requires ratification by the teachers and the school board.

Superintendent Don Austin said in a statement that the bargaining teams participated in multiple negotiating sessions throughout March and April prior to reaching a tentative agreement at 8:20 p.m. on Thursday.

For 2020-21, teachers will receive:

• a 3% increase to the salary schedule effective July 1, 2020;

• a one-time, off-the-schedule payment equal to 2%;

• and an increased employer contribution to the cost of “health and welfare benefits,” equivalent to an additional .26% salary increase.

For 2021-22, teachers will receive:

• a 3% increase to the salary schedule effective July 1, 2021;

• and a one-time, off the schedule payment equal to 2%.

In addition, for the 2022 calendar year (Jan. 1-Dec. 31), the district shall contribute toward health and welfare benefits an additional amount that provides unit members with the same dependent contributions as the 2021 calendar year.

More information about this in tomorrow’s Daily Post.
