School board adopts new model for teacher pay
Placeholder Image
MONROE - A committee of Monroe teachers, school board members and administrators have developed a new model for teacher compensation that will raise starting salaries but slow salary increases over a teacher's career. Under the new model, all teachers in the Monroe school district will receive a raise of at least $1,000 for next school year. Business Administrator Ron Olson said the new system will save the district a little more than $100,000 per year after the first year.
