Seattle Teachers, District Reach Tentative Contract Agreement
Seattle School District and its teachers' union have reached a tentative agreement on a new, two-year contract.
The district and Seattle Education Association (SEA) bargained for more than 12 hours Saturday. The deal was finalized early Sunday morning.
The district and union are waiting to publicly release details of the contract until SEA has been able to relay the offer to teachers.
Last-minute sticking points involved teacher pay, work hours and using student test scores in teacher evaluations.
Seattle teachers will vote on the contract Tuesday evening.
School is scheduled to start on Wednesday.
