Courtesy of the Elk Grove Township Elementary District 59 The agreement provides for an increase in compensation from 1.1% to 3.25% in the coming school year, ranging from 1.5 to 3.5% the following year and the following year. Elk Grove Township Elementary District 59 has colored a new three-year teacher contract that calls for pay increases of up to 3.5%, although officials have yet to publish the full terms of the agreement, which is due to come into effect on July 1. The proposed three-year salary increases are estimated at $3.6 million. District officials said the official language of the contract will be finalized by their lawyers, and once the audit is complete, the document would be published on the district`s website. On Wednesday, the district gave some additional details about the contract, which was passed Monday night by the school board by a vote of 7 to 0. Members of the District 59 Education Association, which includes certified teachers and certified professionals such as social workers and language pathologists, ratified the contract on May 31. The new contract eliminates two pay plans in the old deal and instead creates a new 26-line pay matrix in which the investment is not synonymous with years of service, he said. District spokesman Justin Sampson said that in an effort to attract and retain newer employees, the higher percentages would be applied to people 18 years of age or younger. The contract replaces the six-year contract between the board of directors and the union, which expires on June 30.
Negotiating teams representing both sides met a dozen times from January 6 to negotiate a new agreement. District 59 includes parts of Elk Grove Village, Arlington Heights, Plains and Mount Prospect.
