Teacher Salaries

The District and the CTA/CU Negotiations Teams met to begin salary negotiations and have reached a tentative agreement for the utilization of referendum funds earmarked for teacher salaries.  In this tentative agreement, the Board and St. Lucie CTA/CU agree to a four-year provision for all eligible teachers (including new hires) to receive a Referendum Recruitment and Retention Annual Supplement in the following amounts beginning with the 2019-2020 school year:

  • Beginning teachers = $1,000
  • 1- 5 years eligible experience = $2,000
  • 6-9 years eligible experience = $5,000
  • 10 years + eligible experience = $7,800

 

This supplement will be a part of regularly scheduled paychecks, and it will also apply to the FRS contribution.  Eligible teachers are those who are newly hired and returning classroom/non-classroom teachers.
