Teachers approve new contract in Anoka-Hennepin school district

The deal would use up most of district's share of a recent state boost in education funding

Teachers in the Anoka-Hennepin school district have approved a compensation package that will eat up virtually all of the money the district received from the Legislature last year as part of a $2.2 billion boost for public education.

Under a compromise agreement reached through mediation last month, the district's 3,200 teachers would see average pay climb by 5% in the first year of the new two-year contract and 3% in the second year. The deal is retroactive to June 30, when the last contract expired.

The deal still must be approved by the Anoka-Hennepin school board and the executive board of the union, Anoka Hennepin Education Minnesota. With more than 36,000 students, Anoka-Hennepin is the state's largest school district.
