Charles School Board Seeks $4.1 Million for Pay Raises

By Jenna Johnson and Megan Greenwell

The Charles County Board of Education on Tuesday tacked $4.1 million for salary increases on the preliminary schools budget for next fiscal year. The revised $308.7 million spending plan now goes to county commissioners.

In January, Superintendent James E. Richmond presented the board with a $304.6 million budget. It called for an increase of $5.1 million over this fiscal year's budget so that the school system could cover mandatory cost increases in health insurance, student transportation, utilities and service contracts. The budget did not include money for employee salary adjustments. [Wash.Post]
