GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — An influx of state funding will result in the largest pay raise in at least five years for some Colorado teachers.
The Daily Sentinel reports teachers in the Mesa County Valley School District 51 will see a 2.6 percent and $500 pay increase next year as well as an additional contract day for professional development.
Mesa Valley Education Association members voted to approve the contract on Monday, and the District 51 Board of Education approved the contract Tuesday.
Mesa Valley Education Association President Heather O’Brien says the 1 percent market adjustment to the teacher salary range will raise the minimum and maximum teacher salaries from a range of $34,280 to $71,477 to a range of $37,440 to $75,780.
