Edgewood pact has raise for teachers

        TRENTON — Teachers in the Edgewood Schools will get a 4.06 percent increase on their base salary after approval Thursday of a fact-finder's report.

        The Edgewood Board of Education approved a one- year agreement that will put the beginning salary of a teacher with a bachelor's degree and no experience at $25,960, said Ryan Slone, Edgewood treasurer. The agreement also establishes a $35,000 tuition reimbursement account for teachers.

        “The fact-finder agreed we were offering everything we could,” said school board President John Snyder. “I think the report proved that everything we've been telling them has been the truth. Financially, this is the best it gets.”

        The Edgewood board has put a 4.9-mill operating levy on the Nov. 7 ballot. The levy would raise $1.67 million annually, enough to keep the district solvent for five years. Voters last approved new operating funds in 1987.

        Teachers began the school year working under conditions of an expired master contract.
