Pay increase approved for Mound City teachers

(KLZA)-- The Mound City Board of Education approved an increase in the base pay for district teachers to $38-thousand for the 2022-23 school year when they met Tuesday morning.

The base pay for the previous year was $36-thousand. A new grant program approved at the state level raises the starting salary for teachers in Missouri public school districts to $38-thousand. The grants are only for next year and then the Missouri legislature will have to decide whether it will appropriate the funding again for the next fiscal year.

In other action the Board voted to amend the 2021-22 Budget so revenue and expenditures equal actual revenues and expenditures. These amounts will serve as the preliminary budget for the 2022-23 school year.

After having free breakfast and lunch last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, students will have to pay for meals starting with the new school year. The price will be $2.65 for lunch and $1.50 for breakfast.
