Here's some good news for employees of the Pinellas County School District.
Pay raises, which were ratified by the four unions and approved by the School Board last month, should hit employees' paychecks soon. Teachers should get their pay raise by Oct. 18. Support service workers should get theirs by Oct. 11. Administrators and those in the professional/technical/supervisory category should get theirs by Nov. 1. All pay raises are retroactive to July 1.
Most employee groups received a 5 percent pay raise on average. Teachers received a 5.6 percent pay increase - some teachers got more sizeable raises than others depending on where they fell on the salary schedule.
