School District Personnel Director Donna Hill said that unlike past contracts, the new one is good only for the 2009-10 school year that starts Sept. 1.

The new contract calls for a 3.11% hike - 2.4% going to salaries and .71% for benefits.

Negotiations for the contract started in May. Almost 225 teachers will be affected.
