Board Approves Teachers' Contract

Ann Arbor, MI – Ann Arbor School District teachers won't have to worry about starting school without a contract.
Wednesday night, the Ann Arbor School Board unanimously approved a contract agreement reached with the Ann Arbor Education Association.
Despite the three-year agreement, the district still plans to eliminate 64 teaching positions to trim the district's budget.
The new contract provides wage increases of two-point-two-five percent this year, two percent next year, and one-point-seven-five percent in the third year.
