The San Luis Coastal Unified School District has reached a tentative contract deal with its teachers union.
The three-year contract would give teachers a 2 percent raise retroactive to July 1, and then another 2 percent raise during the 2012-13 academic year.
Teachers would also receive a 1.6 percent pay raise by working three additional staff-development days.
Teachers may also receive an additional 1 percent raise in the 2012-13 academic year if a teacher evaluation system now being discussed is started by October 2012.

Other key points included in the agreement: tying student achievement data to teacher evaluations, offering an early retirement incentive to teachers nearing retirement and returning control of the academic calendar to the school board.
Negotiations between the teachers union and the district reached an impasse earlier this year, leading to a “fact-finding” process in late September in which a neutral person was hired to look at both sides’ positions.
The teachers union membership must still vote on the tentative deal. District leaders hope the school board will accept the proposal at its Nov. 15 meeting.
