South Callaway school board OKs pay hikes

April 13th, 2012 in News

MOKANE, Mo. - Pay increases totaling $180,594 for district employees were approved Wednesday night by the South Callaway R-2 School District Board of Education.

The money approved includes an extra $113,922 for 93 teachers and administrators and an additional $66,672 for 64 non-teaching employees. Percentage hikes vary with each employee.

The pay raises are effective at the start of the fiscal year on July 1. But employees won't see the increase until September because they have elected to receive monthly checks from the current fiscal year spread over their summer vacation period.

The board also approved a proposal by Superintendent Mary Lynn Battles to seek bids on an estimated $200,000 for exterior maintenance of existing buildings.
