Traverse City teachers to get proposal from board
After two days of meeting with a state mediator, the Traverse City Education Association will take a school board proposal back to teachers for a vote.
Traverse City Area Public Schools Superintendent Steve Cousins said the proposal is for two years and contains 1-percent raises in each of the years.
Under the proposal teachers who don't get a step up in pay due to time on the job would get a $200 payment.
Those who are eligible for a step up in pay must first receive a job evaluation of effective or highly effective first.
Cousins wanted to make clear that this is just a proposal and not a tentative agreement.

The teachers current contract expires August 31.
