A final deal between the BC Teachers' Federation and BC government to restore class size and composition is expected to be signed next week.
BCTF President Glen Hansman says both parties will meet three times next week.
"We've been estimating just based on what was taken out of the system, about $300 million dollars more per year, and while the province hasn't included a full dollar amount in the K-12 budget, does have a sizable cushion in the contingency fund."
In January, a $50-million dollar interim deal was reached to begin the process and hire 1100 teachers.
Earlier this week, Finance Minister Mike de Jong announced $320-million over three years to cover the province's obligation to the teachers union, but said that money from the BC Budget was a 'placeholder'.
This all stems from a Supreme Court of Canada ruling that sided with teachers who lost collective bargaining rights back in 2002.
