EDMONDS — Teachers in Edmonds public schools will receive a pay hike this fall under a one-year contract extension approved by the district’s Board of Directors on Tuesday.
The deal provides a salary hike of 2% for certificated teachers plus a $1,250 increase for each step in their salary schedule. The new schedule will take effect Sept. 1.
With the changes, a first-year instructor with a bachelor’s degree will earn a starting salary of $68,965, up from the current starting pay of $66,184.
At the top end, a certificated teacher with 14 years experience, a master’s degree and 90 units of additional education will make $124,658, up from $120,646.
The board did not discuss the contract extension before approving it on a 4-0 vote. Director Gary Noble abstained.
