sno vallley teachersSNOQUALMIE- Students in the Snoqualmie Valley School District are supposed to start school on Wednesday, but teachers have yet to approve a new contract.

A district spokesperson says on Friday, the district offered the Snoqualmie Valley Education Association a new proposal, that includes a 4% pay increase over the next three years, and extra money for teachers whose class size surpasses a certain level.

The pay increase equates to 1% the first year of the contract, 1% the second year, and 2% the third year.  The superintendent and school board are hopeful that contract will be approved, but the teacher’s union won’t be voting on it until Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.
