Minneapolis teachers have a new contract. Will MPS need more state money to pay for it?
New, bigger contracts for Minneapolis Public Schools teachers and school aides will force budget adjustments, the superintendent says, though the district may have a friendly ear at the state Legislature amid a budget surplus.
Teachers will get a $4,000 one-time bonus in April and at least a 2 percent pay raise. Education support professionals are in line for a $6,000 one-time bonus, with half due in April and the second half in 2023.
