The Palo Alto Board of Education will discuss raises for Palo Alto teachers and school administrators, including Superintendent Kevin Skelly, in its regular meeting tonight.
The board also will review options for academic calendars that would take the district through spring 2017.
Final votes on both topics will be scheduled for later meetings.
In tentative contracts with labor unions representing teachers and school staff, Scott Bowers, the school district's assistant superintendent for human resources, is recommending 4 percent raises as well as one-time, 2 percent bonuses based on 2012-13 salary.
Bowers has proposed identical raises for non-unionized management employees.
In the case of Skelly, the proposal is for a 3 percent raise for the 2013-14 school year only, and no bonus.
The board will hold public hearings as well as discussions tonight on all the proposed raises, with final votes likely Dec. 10.
In other business tonight, the board will review two calendar options, both of which end the first semester before winter break.
Also tonight, the board will be asked to approve a "planning timeline" that would lead to a decision as to the location and programming of a new elementary school by May 2014.
Tonight's meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the boardroom of school district headquarters, 25 Churchill Ave.
