ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A tentative agreement between Albuquerque’s public school system and the Albuquerque Teachers Federation calls for teachers and other educators to get pay raises.

An announcement by the district and the union says teachers and other educators will get a raise of the greater of $2,000 or 3 percent.

The state budget for the upcoming fiscal year provides funding for minimum raises for all teachers but only required raises for entry-level ones.

The announcement by the district and the union says they agreed that all teachers and other educators need higher salaries.

With the raises, the minimum pay for the district’s entry-level teachers will reach $32,000, while the minimum pay for the next two levels go up to $42,000 and $52,000.

The raises take effect in August.
