The Clark County School Board last night approved pay raises for district teachers, following an August agreement between the district and union leaders.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the three-year agreement includes a pay raise for teachers and an increased contribution from the district to the teachers’ health insurance trust.
It came after an arbitration decision and it includes $51 million to provide step increases for salaries, increased health care contributions for licensed personnel in the current and next school years, and $17 million to fund the first year of a Professional Growth System.
Both sides have also agreed to work together during the next legislative session to ask for more funding. The board’s vote was 5-1, with Trustee Kevin Child casting the lone vote in opposition.
