Starting pay for Edmonds teachers to be $62,688 after new deal

EDMONDS, Wash. — A tentative agreement between the Edmonds School District and the teachers union would ensure that teachers in Edmonds will receive as much as a 20 percent increase, the Everett Herald reported Wednesday.

The Edmonds Education Association has a general membership meeting on Aug. 28, during which the union is expected to ratify the agreement.

Pending approval from school board directors, the salary hikes would take effect on Sept. 1. The first day of school in the Edmonds Public School district is Sept. 5.
