Teacher raises marked down
Placeholder Image
There are still raises in the proposed budget for teachers but they won’t be what was first hoped for as budgeting concerns has forced school officials to slash the increases by more than half. Under the present plan, heard by the board of education during its regular meeting this past week, it was agreed to adjust the request for raises to $600 per certified employee. Added with a $600 increase being kicked in by the state, it will figure out to a $1,200 raise for every teacher.
