Penn-Harris-Madison teachers getting raises

Teachers with the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation will be getting a minimum of $2,000 raise this school year.

The Teachers Association approved a new one-year agreement on Friday and the Penn Harris Madison Board of School Trustees approved the agreement for the 2015-16 school year.

The starting salary will increase from $35,000 to $37,000.

Teachers who were rated Effective or Highly Effective for the 2014-15 school year and make more than $61,479 during that school year will receive a $2,000 raise. Those who are in their second contract year or more and make less than $61,479 will receive a $2,500 increase.

“This is a way to recognize and thank our teachers for the contributions they make to providing excellence in the classroom for our students,” said Superintendent Dr. Jerry Thacker in a press release. “P-H-M wants to not only attract the best school teachers, but retain them. These benefits help make that possible.”
