Teachers, nurses get a 2 percent raise


Teachers and nurses in the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District are getting a raise.

The District 196 School Board approved a new deal Monday that will add 2 percent to salary schedules for the two groups in each of the next two years. The new contract, approved on a 5-0 vote with two board members absent, also added an additional .71 percent to the top step of the longevity schedule in the first year and another .6 percent in the second year.
