must consider only those applications to participate that are submitted jointly by a
district and the exclusive representative of the teachers. The application must contain an
alternative teacher professional pay system agreement that:

(1) implements an alternative teacher professional pay system consistent with
section 122A.414; and

(2) is negotiated and adopted according to the Public Employment Labor Relations
Act under chapter 179A, except that notwithstanding section 179A.20, subdivision 3, a
district may enter into a contract for a term of two or four years.
