MONROE - Teachers in the Monroe school district will receive the modest wage increase limited by state law, along with a supplemental "step" increase if eligible, for a total 2.68 percent salary increase for the 2017-18 school year, the school board decided Monday. The eight attending board members unanimously approved the wage agreement with the Monroe Education Association after about 10 minutes of meeting in closed session. The MEA plans to ratify the agreement this week or early next week, District Administrator Rick Waski said.
