GRETNA, LA (WVUE) - Jefferson Parish public school teachers are about to get pay raises for the first time in several years.
The Jefferson Parish School Board approved a new plan Tuesday night to compensate teachers and staff for three years of frozen salaries.
It means teachers who've worked in the system for over three years and were rated as "effective," could see a raise of up to $2400 dollars.
School Superintendent James Meza told board members, "You know we've made some hard decisions in the past and the board made those decisions so that we could be here today. Not only can you give a raise, you can sustain the raise."
The pay increases would cost the Jefferson Parish school district about $10.5 million dollars a year.
The changes are set to take effect for the 2014-2015 school year.
