School Board Approves Pay Hike

School Board Approves Pay Hike

Staffers in the Eau Claire Area School District are going to receive a pay raise next year, and a pay hike for teachers goes before  the school board next month. 

The Eau Claire School Board last night approved a four-point-seven percent pay increase, which will cost the district almost one-point-seven million dollars.  Board members say the pay increase is based on the Consumer Price Index and is meant to retain employees and make sure they do not suffer from inflation. 

The board plans to vote on a pay increase for teachers next month following approval of a new contract by educators.
