Local News

The Erie School District and it’s 860 teachers have reached a tentative deal on a new contract.

This coming less than a week after those teachers voted to authorize a strike if needed.

Superintendent Brian Polito confirmed the agreement is for three years with average raises of about 2.7% per year.

The deal also removes athletic coaches from the union contract.

The Erie Education Association has been working without a deal since June.

The agreement still needs to be voted on by the teachers and the Erie School Board.

Polito expects the board to take their vote on November 10th.
