Teacher and principal contracts approved

It is with great joy that I share with you that both the teacher and principal contracts have been approved. Members of the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers and the Minneapolis Principals' Forum ratified the contracts and the Minneapolis Board of Education approved the agreements on Tuesday. These contracts represent more than just salaries and benefits. The content of these contracts aligns with our Shift goals when it comes to how we are going to affect change for some of our highest-need students. Add a comment
