We’d like to offer some clarification about the newly agreed-upon contract with the Colchester Educators Association as was published yesterday. Here is a more accurate description of the terms:
* For the 2011–2012 school year, eligible teachers will receive a step increase;
* For the 2012–2013 school year, teachers will receive a step increase, if eligible, and a slight increase to their base salary. This will result in a total increase of 2.75 percent (new money); and
* For the 2013–2014 school year, teachers will receive a step increase, if eligible, and an adjustment to the base salary. This will result in a total increase of 2.80 percent (new money).
As reported yesterday, the contract will expire on June 30, 2014.
