The school administration and the teacher's union have agreed on a three-year contract after a couple weeks of negotiations.
Before this pact, the district's teachers had experienced an eight-year freeze on salary.
Under the agreement ratified last week by the Monroeville Teachers Association, teachers will get a 3-percent raise on base pay the first year, a 1-percent increase the second year and a "re-opener" the third year. That means during the third year, the teachers can re-negotiate their salary.
