WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Wichita teachers and the district's school board have approved a tentative contract that includes the first raise for teachers in four years.
The teachers and board both approved the contract on Monday, after months of negotiations.
Union officials said Monday that about two-thirds of the district's 4,000 teachers voted, with 88 percent approving. The agreement includes a 4 percent increase in salary, benefits and reduced work time.
Superintendent John Allison said the $8.6 million cost of the contract has already been factored into the district's budget.
