Tupelo schools consider raise for employees

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – The Tupelo School District will consider giving a raise to all 1,065 of its employees, Superintendent David Meadows said during Tuesday’s school board meeting.
The raise would be for both licensed and non-licensed staff. The amount of the raise has not yet been determined but will be studied as the district develops its budget for the next school year.
The school board recently approved its salary schedule for licensed staff. That schedule would remain the same as last year, but teachers would receive at least $3,000 more than the state requires.
Any raise would be added to that.
