Bend-La Pine Schools’ Teachers Union ratified an agreement for a contract that will help the District to balance the 2011-12 budget, and add back one day to the school year. Superintendent Ron Wilkinson said that the more than 800-member Bend Education Association agreed today to several concessions that will allow the District to balance the budget.  The more than $4 million in 2011-12 concessions include:

- Dropping the deferred cost of living increase (was due July 1, 2011)
- No new cost of living increase for 2011-12
 -No increase in the District insurance contribution
 -A delay in the step increase for additional experience
- Reduced professional development and tuition reimbursement
 -Acceptance of six furlough days (down from seven in 2010-11).

In all, the District has made nearly $15 million in reductions to balance the K-12 education State budget shortfall for the 2011-12 school year.
