The Quincy School Board met Thursday morning and ratified a one-year contract with the Quincy Federation of Teachers and Educational Support Personnel.

Of the five board members present, four voted in favor of the deal, with one abstention.

The pact had been ratified by the teachers union by what was described as an overwhelming majority two weeks ago.

Union representatives signed the new contract Wednesday, and board officials signed Thursday morning.

The new contract gives teachers a raise based on years of service and up to a two percent raise if the school district finishes the year with a surplus.
