Princeton Teachers, School Board, Reach Agreement on a New Contract

princeton public schoolsThe Princeton Public Schools teachers’ union and the school board  announced this afternoon that an agreement has been reached for a new teachers’ contract.

Princeton Public Schools Board of Education President Andrea Spalla and Joanne Ryan, president of the Princeton Regional Education Association, issued a join statement announcing the agreement.

“We are pleased to inform the Princeton community that the negotiating teams of the PREA and the Board of Education for the Princeton Public Schools have signed a Memorandum of Agreement for a successor contract,” the statement reads. “Further details of the new contract will be published once the PREA membership and the Board of Education have voted to approve the new agreement.

The statement did not include any other details about the terms of the contract. Teachers have been working under the terms o the old contract since July 1 of last year. The relationship between the union and the school board has grown increasingly adversarial over the last several months. Many parents and students begged the two sides to come to an agreement over the last several weeks. The key issues were health care contributions and salary increases.

“We are eager to move forward together to provide the very best educational experiences for our community’s children, reads the statement. “Both the PREA and the Board of Education are grateful for the patience and support of the entire Princeton community and we look forward to continuing to serve you.”
