Baldwin-Whitehall School District and its teachers have reached a tentative agreement on a new contract, following nearly 18 months of negotiations.
The 260 members of the Baldwin-Whitehall Education Association have been working under the terms of a six-year contract that expired June 30, 2015.
The tentative pact is “fiscally responsible” with “fair representation of the district, its taxpayers and its staff,” Superintendent Randal Lutz said in a statement Wednesday.
Matt Edgell, regional advocacy coordinator with the Pennsylvania State Education Association, declined to comment until the contract is approved.
A vote by both parties likely will be taken in August, prior to the start of the 2016-17 school year. Details of the contract will be made available by the district once it is approved, leaders said in the statement.
