MUNCIE, Ind.—There will be pay raises for teachers at Muncie Community Schools (MCS) starting in the fall for the 2022-23 school year. The MCS Board of Trustees says these are the largest raises in district history.
The pay increases range from $6,800 and $8,200 for each teacher. Those raises are determined by how long the teacher has been at the school and how experienced they are.
“We are thrilled to be able to recognize the outstanding teachers we have in Muncie Community Schools in this way,” Dave Heeter, a member of the board’s Compensation Committee, said. “We believe this is fair and equitable for the jobs these hardworking educators do every day, and it’s also responsible handling of the district’s finances to keep us in a stable situation.”
Here is a breakdown of the approved raises:
1 – 4 years of teaching experience: $6,800
5 – 10 years of teaching experience: $7,200
5 – 10 years of teaching experience with 5+ years at MCS: $7,700
11 – 19 years of teaching experience: $7,700
11 – 19 years of teaching experience with 5+ years at MCS: $8,200
20+ years of teaching experience: $6,800
20+ years of teaching experience with 5+ years at MCS: $7,300
MCS will bump up any teacher with 20+ years of experience to $60,000 annually if the raise does not push them over that threshold. The district has also increased the salary of all beginning teachers to $48,000, up from $42,000 just a year ago.
The cost of all the raises is $2.4 million.
