ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Orange County Public School teachers will receive a pay increase, according to the Orange County Classroom Teachers Association.
The union said a base salary for full-time teachers who make less than $47,500 will be brought up to at least $47,500.
This includes pre-K teachers.
Any teacher who makes more than this will get a bump of 1.27 percent in their salary, according to the union.
The OCCTA said the increases are retroactive to the first day of the school year.
Back in June, Gov. DeSantis signed a bill saying base salaries of K-12 classroom teachers would be at $47,500 for public school teachers in Florida.
Back in the summer, Commissioner Richard Corcoran said the funding would put Florida on a path to make teachers in the state some of the highest-paid in the country.
