The Modesto City Schools board will convene at 5 p.m. today for a special meeting to consider contracts for its employee groups. The meeting will be at the Staff Development Center, 425 Locust St. The board will vote on a three-year pact with the Modesto Teachers Association, which would give a 1.5percent ongoing salary boost and 1.5percent in extra pay for 2014-15. The deal would cost the district an estimated $10 million more than the previous contract. One-year contracts with the California School Employees Association, representing support staff, and the Modesto City Schools Managers, representing mostly district office workers and principals, will be up for approval. The deal would give a 2percent ongoing raise and 1percent for 2014-15, additions that will cost the district $2.5 million for support staff and $1 million for the managers, according to agenda reports.
