ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — The Albuquerque public school system's board has approved a labor contract for teachers and other employees.

The Board of Education approved the agreement with the Albuquerque Teachers Federation Wednesday night.

Teachers and other union-represented workers overwhelmingly approved the agreement earlier this week.

The contract for the 2015-2016 school year includes raising the minimum annual salary for teachers to $34,000 from $32,000.

Other provisions include funding for mentoring of teachers and creation of a task force to study sick leave and incentives for attendance.

In other action, the school board approved a $200,000 annual contract for acting Superintendent Raquel Reedy. She is temporarily replacing Luis Valentino.

He resigned Aug. 31 following the hiring of an administrator facing child sex abuse charges.
