The KIPP charter school network has reached a 10-year agreement with the Baltimore Teachers Union for how much it will pay its teachers for working extra-long hours.

KIPP had threatened to close its two schools in Baltimore if it couldn’t settle on a long-term contract with teachers similar to the current one-year contract, which expires June 30.

With the agreement, a KIPP teacher will be paid 20 percent more than a Baltimore teacher working in a traditional public school to work a nine-hour day and teach summer school for 18 days. The contractual school day in Baltimore is almost a third shorter than the KIPP day. KIPP teachers in Baltimore currently work 9 hours a day for 20.5 percent more in pay.
