The Scott County Board of Education approved a 1% raise for employees of Scott County Schools at its meeting on April 20, 2017. The raise was presented by Superintendent Dr. Kevin Hub as part of the district’s salary schedule for 2017-2018.
“We are pleased that the Board of Education approved our recommendation for next year’s salary schedule which includes a 1% raise for all full time classified and certified staff,” stated Superintendent Hub.
The salary increase will take effect on July 1, 2017. School-year employees will see the increase on their paychecks on August 10, 2017. This raise will cost the district an estimated $470,000 to be taken from the general fund.
To recognize the dedication of district employees, it is money well spent. “We are fortunate to have a staff that works hard to make great things happen for children every day,” Hub continued.
The superintendent, district administrative team, and members of the Scott County Board of Education have worked to make this raise a reality. There was no across the board raise for SCS employees last year. District employees received a 2% raise in 2015-2016 and 1% raises in both 2014-2015 and 2013-2014.
“As a board, we are proud of the strong financial standing of our district,” commented Board Chair Kevin Kidwell. “We are happy to be in a position to provide a raise to our deserving employees.”
