The Worcester County public school teachers will be getting a raise next year.
It will be a 1 percent cost of living increase.
In addition, there will be no staff cuts.
That’s the unanimous decision by the Board of Education when they approved their budget yesterday.
School Superintendent Louis Taylor told the Salisbury Daily Times that this would help hire and retain the highest quality of instructors.
Meanwhile, negotiations between the school board and Worcester County Teachers Association have been completed.
The last step will be a vote by the association.
But the Daily Times reports that association president Beth Shockley-Lynch said the negotiations went well and approval is expected by the membership.
