Prince George’s Co. School Officials Reach A Deal To Return To Teacher Pay Raises

It is good news to Prince George’s County educators and employees. Interim School CEO Monica Goldson has reached a deal in part with the Prince Geoge’s County Educator Association to return to step pay raises.

The $124-million dollar plan calls for 10,500 school employee’s over the next 3 years to receive a pay increase. They were stopped during the 2009-2010, 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school year because of the recession. $39-million will go to pay raises missed during that time.

Under the plan teachers and staff who did not get a pay raise during that time would get a 25 percent pay raise over the next 3 years. New hires who did not work during that time will get a 13 percent raise of the next 3 years.

It’s not a done deal because the contract needs approval from the Prince George’s County Council and the union.

Prince George’s County Educator Association President Theresa Dudley praised the CEO for the decision.
