At the October meeting of the board, they held a public hearing on the proposed contract.
The Master Contract included a $1,400 increase to base salaries for eligible teachers. The increase is identical to the raise last year. Additionally, the corporation is providing a contribution increase for insurance premiums.
Later in the meeting, the board approved a base increase of $1,400 for administrators who are eligible.
