Broward County Teachers, Classroom Assistants Get Pay Raises

 

By Kevin Deutsch

The Broward County School Board unanimously approved pay raises for teachers and classroom assistants during a special session Friday.

The raises are the result of contract agreements reached between the county and the Broward Teachers Union in December, which called for salary boosts for members of Education Professionals (teachers), as well as Educational Support Professionals (classroom support staff) for the 2021-22 school year.

The terms of the agreement include:

  • A $2,000 one-time stipend for all active teachers
  • Salary increases of 1.33 percent for teachers deemed “highly effective” on the “Pay for Performance” salary schedule, 1.07 percent salary increase for teachers on the grandfathered salary schedule, and 1 percent for teachers deemed “effective” on the Pay for Performance salary schedule
  • A $1,000 bonus for instructional personnel who did not qualify for the $1,000 Disaster Relief Bonus provided by the state
  • A $500 supplement payment for “multilingual itinerant support staff” whose workload has substantially increased
  • A one-time $1,500 stipend for all active Education Support Professionals
  • A minimum hourly pay rate increase for Classroom Assistants from $11.51 to $13
  • A minimum hourly pay rate increase for Teacher Assistants from $13.27 to $15

“With the School Board’s approval, District staff will work to provide the agreed-upon salary increases and stipends as soon as possible,” the school district said in a press release announcing the pay raises.
