The Rugby Education Association and the Rugby School Board last week reached a tentative accord on the terms of the 1987-88 school year teaching contracts.

The tentative agreement was ratified by the REA Wednesday evening and will be considered by the full school board at a special meeting tonight, Oct. 5.

The accord raises the base teachers salary from $14,400 to $14,500 per year. The total cost of the package approved by the negotiating teams is 2.2 percent higher than the last school term and will cost roughly $25,000 more than one year ago.

Other changes in the agreement relate to:

A reduction in the number of years a teacher is in the system before they qualify for educational leave (seven years was reduced to four).

The board agreed to buy, at a cost of $25 per day, each day of personal leave accumulated past a maximum of five in five years.

The wages paid to teachers who take tickets at various events was raised to $10 per event.

The school board will be considering final adoption of the school district budget tonight in addition to the negotiated agreement
