CCSD Teachers Lose Their Raises
CCSD Teachers Lose Their Raises

AIR DATE: February 19, 2013

An arbitrator decided that the Clark County School District does not have to continue to pay 17,000 teachers the raises they were given at the start of the school year. The teachers don't have to pay the money back but their salaries will return to the 2011-2012 figures. Is it fair to take someone's raise away? How will the district use that money now?

    I would like to know how your guests feel about new teachers getting their money taken away. We are already at the bottom of the pay scale, but now we have more years experience and are getting put back to beginning teacher pay. CCSD just put out a questionnaire about recruiting new teachers, how do you plan to recruit or keep new teachers with these pay freezes. We have no incentive to stay with CCSD long term.
