Detroit Lakes Public Schools and its teachers have labor peace for the next 18 months: The school board approved a new bargaining agreement Monday night.


The district was up against a Jan. 15 deadline to reach a deal or face a $25 per pupil fine from the state.

The deal, covering the current and the next school years, gives teachers a 1.48 percent raise this year and a 1.4 percent raise for the 2010-11 school year. Step and lane increases are also in place.
