Norman Public Schools raises teacher, staff pay
Here’s information from the Norman Public Schools administration:
The Norman Board of Education tonight increased teacher pay and support personnel (such as bus drivers, maintenance staff, school secretaries, crossing guards, teacher assistants, interpreters, etc.) for the 2012-2013 school year. The teacher pay increase is approximately $1.1 million and the support increase is approximately $750,000, which is a total of nearly $2 million for both NPS employee groups. This action is not a result of an increase in state funding but rather the district utilizing reserve funds to make it possible. A press release on tonight’s action is posted at: http://www.norman.k12.ok.us/index.php?news-press-releases&action=view&post_id=43 .The press release also includes hyperlinks to an opinion piece the superintendent wrote and which was published last week regarding the district’s reserve funds.
