Put­nam City teach­ers to get pay raises

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - NEWS -

Most teach­ers in the Put­nam City school dis­trict will get a $660 raise this school year. The Put­nam City Board of Ed­u­ca­tion voted Mon­day to move teach­ers one step fur­ther on the salary sched­ule and to in­crease base pay by $180. The raises are retroac­tive to the be­gin­ning of the con­tract pe­riod.

Also approved were in­creases in ex­tra duty pay, which teach­ers earn for tak­ing on roles like coach, text­book co­or­di­na­tor or band, or­ches­tra or vo­cal mu­sic di­rec­tor. Other board ac­tion in­volved start­ing pay for re­turn­ing teach­ers, paid dis­abil­ity ben­e­fits and teacher re­tire­ment fund con­tri­bu­tions. The to­tal cost of all the changes is about $2.4 mil­lion.
