Pinellas administrators to get 5 percent raises
Pinellas County Schools will provide 5 percent raises to administrators for the 2013/14 school year.
According to the school district, it has traditionally tried to provide administrators and employees in the professional/technical/supervisory category with the same percentage raise as teachers and service workers. Those groups are getting 5.6 percent and 5 percent raises, on average. Support employees who aren't represented by a union also will get the pay bump.
The School Board will consider the 5 percent bump for administrators at its regular meeting Tuesday.
If approved, the raises will be retroactive to July 1. The district will pay about $1.5 million for raises for administrators, $605,000 for raises for the professional/technical/supervisory employees, and $438,000 for raises for support employees not in a union.
The School Board also will consider Tuesday whether to approve the tentative agreements with the teachers union, service workers union, police union and support professionals union.
