St. Paul teachers reach tentative contract deal
ST. PAUL — The St. Paul school district and its teachers union reached a tentative contract agreement this week with assistance from an outside mediator.
Key issues involve a union proposal for limits on class sizes and special education caseloads and a district proposal that adds 10 minutes to the school day. It's the first time the St. Paul Federation of Teachers enlisted the help of a mediator. Details of the agreement weren't immediately released.
There's no word on when union members will vote on the deal.
