Teachers in the Collier County School District will either return to the drawing board or accept a new offer.

The final agreement is $4,000 to everyone’s base salary. Additional increases can be earned based on performance and salary schedule.

The school board will hold vote at a meeting on Tuesday.

Public school teachers in the county have been fighting for what they call livable wages.
