An agreement reached Monday between the Miami-Dade school district and its teachers union includes an 1.8% average pay increase for educators that takes effect in December. The raise is the first for teachers in the Florida district since contract negotiations reached an impasse in June 2008. The three-year agreement features annual salary negotiations, with possible performance bonuses. The agreement will cost the district about $40 million, according to Miami-Dade Superintendent Alberto Carvalho.
