Superintendent donates pay increase to teachers
–Staff in the district, including the administration, was scheduled to receive a 1.5 percent pay increase beginning in the 2018-19 school year, according to the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District Superintendent Chris Williams.
Williams is donating the 1.5 percent he was set to receive into a fund for teacher classroom budgets. Teachers may use the classroom budgets to purchase school supplies throughout the year.
“I have a great deal of respect and admiration for the work our teachers and staff do every day and their feedback is invaluable…I value their comments and felt it essential to put the 1.5 percent back into their hands and in the hands of students,” said Williams.
