All Okaloosa school district employees likely to see pay hike

Published: Friday, December 7, 2012 at 10:54 AM.

Salary schedules also have been restructured in part or completely for administration, managerial and professional/technical employees.

Pay for support personnel was increased by 2.77 percent on average. While that is less than other employees, it comes after support workers took a voluntary pay cut and freeze the last school year so they could keep their jobs.

 “I think the district recognized the morale with the 3 percent of our pay that we had to give up,” said Patrick Strong, the president of the Okaloosa County Educational Support Professionals Association. “This will be appreciated.”

The proposed salary increases will cost the district $3.2 million.

The school board will vote on the proposals at its meeting Monday night in Fort Walton Beach.

WANT TO ATTEND?: The Okaloosa County School Board meeting begins at 6 p.m. Monday at 120 Lowery Place in Fort Walton Beach.
