Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan teachers may get dayoff to improve instruction

Teachers in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan school district have a new contract and likely will get more time to fine-tune instruction under measures approved by the school board Monday evening. Educators will not receive cost-of-living pay raises under the new two-year contract approved by the board Monday and ratified last week by the union of 2,100 teachers and school nurses. They will continue to receive salary increases tied to experience and education. The agreement holds flat what teachers pay for health care and provides a 1 percent increase in the second year at the top pay scale for teachers with advanced degrees.
