The Mattituck-Cutchogue school board and the district’s administrators union have reached a new agreement nearly nine months after the last contract expired.
The school board unanimously approved the four-year deal during its regular meeting Thursday night.
School board president Jerry Diffley said after the meeting that every administrator will earn a 1.75 percent increase to their salaries for each year under the new contract.
They’ll also contributed more toward their health benefits through the following phased-in process: No increase for the first year, 16 percent for the second year, 18 percent for the third year, and 20 percent for the fourth and final year of the contract, he said.
Mattituck-Cutchogue Administrators Association leader and high school principal Shawn Petretti described negotiations as “a long process, but a fair process.”
“We’re glad that’s it’s settled,” he said. “We feel that it’s a fair agreement for both the administrators and the district.”
A copy of the new contract, which is effective July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2017, wasn’t immediately available.
The school board and the district’s teachers union, whose contract expires next month, are currently in negotiations.
