ELC adds $712 to base salary

By Staff | Apr 16, 2008

The Estherville Lincoln Central Board of Education Monday approved a tentative agreement with the Estherville Eduction Association to increase the base salary by $712, from $23,388 to $24,100.

The increase does not take into account any insurance rate changes or action by the Legislature addressing teacher salaries.

As part of the agreement, the district will distribute Teacher Compensation funds as recommended by the state.

“We think this is a fair settlement,” Superintendent Dick Magnuson said of the agreement.

n The board approved a graduation list of 78 students.

n The board set 5:05 p.m. May 12 for budget amendment hearing to adjust to the current year’s budget.
