The Wrentham school committee and the teachers' union have agreed to a contract that will give teachers no raise this year.

Teachers will receive a 3-percent pay increase for the 2008-2009 school year, and another 3-percent raise for the 2009-2010 school year.

In the last two years of the contract, all new employees will pay 20 percent of their health insurance costs, up from 15 percent for current employees.
