AMESBURY — A tentative contract agreement has been reached between the teachers' union and the school district, but mum's the word when it comes to getting any details.

Specifics on the proposed one-year contract won't be disclosed until after the agreement is approved by the union and the School Committee, said school Superintendent G. David Jack.

The protocol is the union votes on the contract first, followed by the School Committee.

Cindy Yetman, president of the American Federation of Teachers Amesbury, said the union will likely vote on the contract at the end of next week or early the following week.

The School Committee meeting on Tuesday is too early, which means the committee won't be able to vote on the contract until their following meeting on June 21.

Teacher aides and janitors (referred to as facilities technicians) are not part of the tentative contract. Negotiations are ongoing with the two groups, Yetman said.

The contract's tentative proposal would mark the second one-year contract in Amesbury. Last month, the police union penned a one-year agreement.
