  9. Oakland teachers reach tentative agreement for 'incredible' contractRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday May 14 | Inside Bay Area

    The city's 2,400 public school teachers reached a tentative three-year contract agreement with the school district Wednesday night that gives them the largest raise in more than 10 years and establishes a "new paradigm" for calculating salaries going forward, officials said Thursday. The complicated formula gives teachers a base increase of 8 percent in salary plus a cut of additional state money coming to the district after July 1. The base pay raise is broken down into a 2 percent raise retroactive to July 1, 2014, a 1 percent raise retroactive to Feb. 1 of this year, a 2.5 percent raise starting on the last day of school this year and a 2.5 percent raise starting Jan. 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017.
