Public Hearing on 2017-18 budget and Arizona State 1.06% Teacher Salary Increase to be held
Tuesday, July 11, 2017
The Kyrene School Governing Board will hold its annual Public Hearing on the upcoming year’s budget on Tuesday, July 11 at 7:00 p.m. at the District Office, Ben Furlong Center, 8700 South Kyrene Road, Tempe, 85284. The Public Hearing will present the 2017-18 Proposed budget and Arizona State 1.06% Teacher Salary Increase. The proposed budget can be viewed on the Arizona Department of Education website by clicking here. (You must choose the Kyrene District and then click on "Proposed Budget".)
In an effort to increase teachers’ salaries, the state legislature approved a 1.06% pay increase for teachers. This increase will be based on a teacher’s earnings for the 2016-17 school year and is over and above the Kyrene approved compensation for 2017-18.
There are a number of eligibility requirements that are imposed in this legislation, including:
• The teacher must have taught in an Arizona public school during the 2016-17 school year
• The teacher must teach in an Arizona public school during the 2017-18 school year
Regular meetings of the Governing Board are open to the public, usually on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. For more information on exact meeting dates and the agendas check Board Docs (24 hours prior to meeting). Governing Board Meetings are livestreamed and available on archive as well.
