Teachers are expected to vote on the tentative agreement by month's end. District 116 board members will be asked to approve their end of the deal at a meeting Sept. 8.

Negotiations on the new contract started in April, District 116 officials said. The instructors had been working under a four-year agreement that expired June 30.

About 400 teachers are employed by the district, according to the most recently available 2013-14 school report card. Pay ranged from $42,253 to $96,507, according to the latest Illinois State Board of Education teacher salary study.

If approved by both sides, the District 116 teachers' contract will be effective from July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2018. The district educates about 7,000 students.
