Granite and Davis school districts have reached tentative agreement with the teachers' associations on contracts that would grant a 4 percent salary increase in each district.
Granite teachers will vote on the proposed agreement Monday, Aug. 29, and the Granite Board of Education will consider the pact during a Sept. 6 meeting.In addition to the across-the-board increase, the Granite proposal would add $200 to the stipend at the 20th step, for a total of $1,200. No changes were made in the district insurance package.
Davis teachers also will receive a 4 percent cost-of-living adjustment and funding for step and lane increases and health insurance. The proposal also contained additional preparation time for elementary school teachers.
The agreement is contingent on ratification by the teachers and final approval by the district board.
Davis Education Spokesman Vic Arnold said the DEA executive board has approved the proposal. Building representatives are expected to get the details next week and will consider the pact during a regular meeting Sept. 6, followed by balloting in the schools Sept. 7-9. By Sept. 12, teachers will have ratified or rejected the contract.
With tentative agreements in Granite, Jordan and Davis districts, the majority of the state's teachers will return to classes with a fair assurance of contracts for the 1994-95 school year. Cache District remains at odds with its teachers.
