Las Lomitas teachers sign contract

Teachers in the Las Lomitas Elementary School District will receive a retroactive 1.75 percent salary increase for the 2008-09 school year under a newly signed agreement reached between their union and the district.

The agreement also includes a 0.25 percent increase in health benefits, according to district Superintendent Eric Hartwig, who said the contract took about 18 months to negotiate.

The district and its teachers will soon begin to negotiate the 2009-10 contract to cover the current school year; that contract might cover more than the current year, Mr. Hartwig said.
