Houston County School Superintendent Tim Pitchford says teachers, administrators and support employees of the county schools will receive a one-year, 2.25 percent raise.
Results released this month show all county schools meeting AYP goals, and the system having a graduation rate of 94 percent. Pitchford says he's wanted to give school employees a performance incentive, and the results gave him the opportunity.
The raise will offset a 2.25 percent increased contribution all school employees in Alabama are being required to make to their retirement plans. Pitchford says he hopes to offer the incentive next year if the school system hits AYP goals again.
