Teachers still would not receive base salary hikes, but the proposal calls for a $1,000 stipend paid to them in the 2013-14 school year if they have not submitted a retirement notice.

It also says applications will be accepted from candidates interested in support staff positions -- such as reading assistants, nurses and secretaries -- covered by a separate union agreement.
