Northshore teachers reach deal on new contract with district

Details of the three-year agreement will not be made public until instructors ratify it Aug. 29.

BOTHELL — Leaders of the Northshore School District and its teacher’s union said Friday they had reached a tentative agreement on a new three-year contract that would take effect with the 2019-20 school year.

The district and the Northshore Education Association declined to release terms of the accord.

In a joint press release, officials said details will be made public following the association’s general membership meeting Aug. 29. That is when teachers are expected to ratify the new collective bargaining agreement.

On June 24, the Mukilteo Education Association ratified a new three-year deal that will boost starting pay for new teachers and give the most veteran instructors the highest salaries in the state.
