Some teachers and staff in Washington County will be getting a pay raise.
The Washington County School Board passed a new salary schedule that would compete with Marion County’s school district.
“We didn’t take money away from anyone,” Washington County Schools Superintendent Robin Cochran said.
As an example, if an instructional assistant is making more here than in Marion County, their pay would remain the same. But, if the same person makes less than an instructor in Marion County, their pay would increase.
