ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County public school employees are set to receive their first raise in three years under a tentative budget deal.

The settlement between the school district’s employee unions and the Board of Education on Monday would give employees an average raise of about 3.4 percent. The salary increases are part of the school system’s $2.1 billion budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

Employees hired before Feb. 1, 2012 would receive a salary increase in July. Those no longer eligible for step increases would get a 2 percent raise. The proposal must be ratified by the unions.

The school board is scheduled to make a final vote June 14.

Other area school districts also are trying to negotiate some form of compensation increase in the coming year.
