Bloomington Schools, Teachers Reach Tentative Agreement

| March 29, 2012

Bloomington Public Schools and the Bloomington Federation of Teachers have tentatively reached an agreement on a two-year contract, concluding a negotiations process that began in January.

Details of the tentative agreement will be announced after a ratification vote in early April. The district is on spring break the week of April 2-6. The Bloomington Board of Education must also approve the proposed agreement after the teachers’ vote.

The teachers union is also working on a Memorandum of Understanding regarding the recently approved Q Comp application. A separate vote on the alternative teacher compensation, evaluation and professional development system plan will take place after the teacher contract ratification.

The Minnesota Department of Education approved the district’s Q Comp plan – jointly developed by the district’s administration and teachers – earlier this month.
