Raises for educators
The Jennings County Classroom Teachers Association ratified their contract last week, then the Jennings County School Corporation (JCSC) board approved the agreement at their meeting Monday night.

"The teachers will be getting a $1,000 a year raise on their base salary," explained Teresa Brown, JCSC superintendent. "That is added as a salary increase, not a stipend."

This means new teachers to the district with no experience will have a beginning salary of $36,000. The highest paid teachers in the district will be pulling down $70,700 a year.

"There were also some changes in the contract language," Brown pointed out. "None of those changes were huge, however."

One change adds rewards for educators who do after-school supervision.

Brown explained that if teachers supervise at two events they will receive an all-access pass to sporting and other extracurricular events within the corporation where admission is charged.
