3-Percent Pay Raises For All Carrollton City Schools' Employees

All employees of the Carrollton City Schools district can look forward to a 3-percent raise in the coming school year, according to soon-to-be-Superintendent Dr. Mark Albertus.
The district will use their share of the increase in educational funding handed down through the state’s 2016-2017 budget for that purpose.
The Carrollton City School Board had previously eliminated furlough days in the their own budget. So, the BOE was pleased to move the new state funding in the direction of the district’s employees, according to Albertus.
“All districts went through the recession and attacked how to get through it in different ways,” Albertus told WLBB Radio. “This pay raise is a direct result of the fiscal management of current Supt. Dr. Edwards and our board of education. Our board made it a priority to restore all the furlough days in our previous two budgets. This funding has allowed them to reward our employees for their hard work and we are really excited about that.
Officials with the Carroll County School District have hinted that they plan to eliminate the district's remaining two furlough days and will consider pay raises for teachers, with the funding returned to the state budget for education.
