The Palo Alto Educators Association and Palo Alto Unified School District reached a tentative agreement through an interest-based bargaining approach. The agreement is contingent upon ratifications from the PAUSD Board of Education and Palo Alto Educators Association. The compensation terms of the tentative agreement include:
- The 2018-19 Teachers' Salary Schedule shall reflect a two percent (2%) increase over the 2017-18 salary schedule, effective January 7, 2019.
- Certificated employees will also receive a one-time 2% off-schedule payment for this year. This 2% off-schedule payment will be based on employees' salaries after the 2% ongoing raise is applied.
- An increase to health benefits has been previously negotiated and approved.
The full content of revisions to contract language will be posted on a future Board of Education agenda.
