Teacher pay discussion show progress

Negotiations between teacher salary committees and school boards have shown progress at Farmington, have been completed at Lakeville, and appear to be settled at Rosemount with more discussion a possibility.


At Rosemount, the school board has agreed they would be able to pay $4,700 for the base pay (four-year-trained teachers), with the first five increments at 5%, and the balance of increments at 6%.

Rosemount has a difference in the number of steps, however, for example, the two-year-trained teachers have five steps, the three-year teachers, six steps, and the four-year-trained teachers and those with 45 credits, each have 11 steps. Masters' degree teachers have 12 steps.

The school board planned to meet Wednesday (today) with the teachers regarding the salary schedule.
