Boone Teachers Forego Pay Raises
(Burlington, Ky.) – Boone County Schools teachers are being credited with helping save jobs in the school district.
Boone Schools are set to receive $10 million less in state and federal funding for the fiscal year 2012 to start in June.
The district’s teachers have opted to go without pay raises in order to prevent 46 teaching positions from being cut. It’s the second time in three years the teachers have not received a raise.
Boone County Schools Superintendent Randy Poe told the Cincinnati Enquirer there will still be 10 special needs staff slashed, and longer bus routes for many students to help balance the budget.
