SH teachers sign off on contract; MV contract still in negotiations




HANCOCK COUNTY — Eastern Hancock teachers will get a raise this year, while Greenfield-Central school officials decided that their budget is too tight for salary increases.

Both EH and G-C boards met Monday evening and approved teacher contracts for the 2012-2013 school year.  Southern Hancock approved a contract last week; Mt. Vernon’s teacher contract is still being negotiated.

EH Superintendent Randy Harris calls this a year of transition before the state’s new teacher evaluation-based raises are fully implemented. Eastern Hancock teachers will get a 1.5 percent pay raise plus a 1 percent one-time bonus, or stipend. Teachers will also get $125 for every day they work developing curriculum during summer break; that’s up from $100.
