Lincoln Public Schools teachers will get a pay raise of $2,600 over the next two years after an agreement was overwhelming passed by the teachers union.

The salary increase for next year would be a little more than 2.5 percent, followed by an increase of 2.3 percent the next year.

It also includes "extra pay" for teachers who coach or are team leaders.

LPS officials say the increase wasn't as much this year because of healthcare costs.
