Worcester Board of Ed to Make Decision on Teacher Salaries

Posted: Updated:
NEWARK, Md.- The Worcester County Board of Education will decide whether teachers will get pay increases during its monthly meeting on Tuesday.

County school officials will hold the open session at 12:30 p.m. inside the Board Meeting Room at the Board of Education's Central Office in Newark, Md.

The board is slated to ratify a negotiated agreement with the Worcester County Teachers Association and the Worcester County Educational Support Personnel Association as decisions about the FY 2016 budget are made.

A board spokesperson said the county approved a $98.9 million budget for the FY 2016. The board hoped for $102.2 million to fund salary increases for teachers.

Members of the Worcester County Commissioners recently told WBOC that there was no room in the budget for a $4 million increase because the county has a $22 million deficit. 

The board will now have to decide if it will make room to fund the increases.
