Wake County board adopts plan to raise pay for all teachers
The Wake County school board adopted a plan that will provide nearly $16 million in pay raises for teachers. Local media outlets reported that the plan would give classroom teachers raises of up to $3,000 this year.
A state plan primarily raised pay this year for beginning teachers. Wake's plan gives raises to all teachers, with the raises targeted for experienced teachers, teachers who don't get raises on the state's salary step schedule and in hard-to-fill areas.
