The Bend La Pine School Board will vote tomorrow on a teachers contract that the District says will help them balance the budget for the upcoming year. The agreement, which was ratified by the Bend La Pine Schools’ Teachers Union on Friday,  will also add back one day to the school year.  Superintendent Ron Wilkinson talked about the agreement this morning on KBND’s "Your Town." “The agreement includes them foregoing a cost of living increase that’s been deferred for the last couple of years; and they’ve agreed to not take that, and not to take any additional cost of living increases; no increases in insurance caps. So basically a zero, zero, zero kind of agreement. But it allows us to do what we need to do to balance this budget.” 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.
