Newport voters to weigh raises for district’s teachers

NEWPORT — Teacher pay raises and a $17.5 million budget are up for a vote at the Newport School District annual meeting.

The meeting is planned for March 11 at the Newport Opera House from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The proposed $17,522,644 budget would have an estimated tax impact of 34 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. The default budget of $17,550,591 would have an estimated tax impact of 41 cents per $1,000.

Four articles would provide pay increases for teachers and support staff as called for in a new collective bargaining agreement between the School Board and Teachers Association to increase salaries and benefits in order to restore “equitable salary steps as stated in previous contracts.”
