Albuquerque Teachers Have Tentative Agreement

Aug 1, 2014

The Albuquerque school district and the teachers' union have a tentative agreement on a new contract.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that the tentative agreement includes a 3 percent salary increase for teachers and that the district retreated on its proposed changes on rules for transferring teachers.

The district had wanted administrators to have broader authority to transfer teachers between schools, but Union President Ellen Bernstein says transfer rules wouldn't change under the tentative agreement.
