CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County School District teachers and principals may be in line for a pay raise.
On Monday night, the school board gave the okay to implement recommendations of a salary study that was presented to the board a few months ago. Based on responsibility and experience, if the employee is not making what is expected for the job, their salary could be increased.
According to the district, if the study finds a teacher should be paid $50,000 a year but is only making $40,000, then that teacher may see an increase of half the difference, or $5,000 in this case.
The school board also voted to apply for a waiver so the district would not have to make up the two days that students missed from school last month due to bad weather.
