Contract impasse costs Boston teachers $9.4m bonus grant

Boston lost out on a $9.4 million federal grant for teacher bonuses Monday because the School Department and the Boston Teachers Union failed to reach an agreement on the issue in time, said a spokesman for the state education department.

The two sides had until the end of March to file the necessary paperwork with the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, which is administering the federal grant locally. The agency’s commissioner, Mitchell Chester, then extended the deadline to Monday morning, but no agreement materialized between the city and the union.
