Pierre School District approves 4 percent raise

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Pierre School District employees will receive a 4 percent salary increase after board members approved a new contract Wednesday.

It's the first ongoing salary increase for district staff in about three years. In each of the past two years, employees have only received a one-time bonus. The raises take effect July 1.

The district's minimum salary for new teachers is now $31,920.

The raise in the one-year contract applies to teachers as well as other staff and administrators, including the superintendent.

Salaries and benefits will now cost the district $12.3 million.
