ALLENDALE, N.J. -- The Board of Education and the Northern Highlands Education Association have agreed to a new, three-year contract with raises of 2.8 percent a year, NorthJersey.com reported.

The contract has been finalized by both the board and the union, the story said.

The increase includes cost-of-living adjustments and compensation for experience, the story said. In 2015-16, a starting teacher with a bachelor’s degree will make $53,398, a reduction of about $300 from the prior agreement, but that figure increases to $56,000 in 2017-18, the story said.

The school board approved the three-year agreement, which is effective from July 1 through June 30, 2018, last week, the story said.

The union represents 160 members made up of teachers, librarians, nurses, athletic trainers, teaching aides, certain secretaries and administrative assistants, custodians and bus drivers, the story said.
