After seven days on strike, teachers with the Oakland Education Association have reached a tentative agreement with the Oakland Unified School District.
The new contract provides a total compensation increase of 14 percent to an 11 percent on-going salary increase with a one-time 3 percent bonus for educators, according to OEA.
OEA officials say it also reduces class sizes and maintains the fiscal solvency of the school district.
“This is a big win for our teachers, students and community,” OEA says.
State Superintendent Tony Thurmond released a statement today on an agreement being reached, saying, “I commend all parties involved for finding a way to work together to make things better for our students, and I applaud everyone who works to provide an education for all of our students.”
The teachers union is expected to have a discussion on the agreement and a ratification vote after a 24-hour period for review.
