Officials at Chittenden South Supervisory Union released detailed information Wednesday night regarding the tentative three-year teacher contract settlement. According to the information provided, eligible teachers would receive a 2 percent salary increase for the current 2010-2011 school year. Raises would then increase by 3 percent in the 2011-2012 school year, and another 3 percent in the 2012-2013 school year.
While salaries will increase over the next three school years, teachers will pay more for their health insurance premiums. Each year, teachers will increase their payments from 13 percent to 15 percent by the end of the three-year contract.
