The teachers' contract (already extended twice this year) was set to expire today, and has now been extended for another 46 days. Negotiations between the District and the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers are continuing.

Notebook coverage of the teachers' contract is included in the just-released Winter edition, with an article highlighting the contract implications of the 163 emergency-certified new teachers hired this year. There is also a report on the District's scaled-back budget, which may limit the District's flexibility in negotiations. Since the spring, District officials have said publicly that there is no money in the current budget to fund teacher raises.

The joint statement announcing the contract extension is available here.
