Paraeducators and other professional staff represented by the Baltimore Teachers Union (BTU), some 3,000 in all, will receive pay raises and additional vacation time under a new contract  agreement made between the BTU and Baltimore City Public School System.


BTU announced that the Paraprofessionals and School Related Personnel (PSRP) chapter of the BTU — which includes classroom assistants, teacher's aides, accountants, secretaries and administrative staff — will receive raises retroactive to July 1, 2010. In addition, PSRP members will receive additional vacation days. PSRP members who do not work in a school will be able to take a spring break.


The contract must be presented to PSRP members for ratification. A date for the ratification has not yet been announced.
