The Central Valley School Board on Tuesday filled its final teaching vacancies for fall and announced that negotiators were zeroing in on a new two-year contract with the district’s teachers union.

School Board Chair Dave Seyfried said the board’s negotiating team and teacher reps had reached a preliminary agreement on a two-year deal that would provide $1,200 in salary increases in both years of the contract.

The adjustments would raise the base salaries of the district’s 20 full-time teachers by $600 and provide a matching $600 step increase this fall with identical pay bumps in year two.

Seyfried estimated the contract would boost teachers’ salaries by 2.75 percent over the length of the deal, which could be finalized as soon as today (Friday).
