Isn’t the state already providing an increase in teacher salaries?


Yes, the Governor signed into law a bill to increase minimum teacher salaries. However, all teachers in the state will receive that money. To stay competitive and keep teachers from leaving, Hernando County will still need to supplement those raises to at least reach the state average. It’s also important to note that the increase will not raise the base salary for any non-classroom teacher.  So our Social Workers, Guidance Counselors, Media Specialists and Title I Resource teachers are not eligible for the salary increase at all.
