Gov. Brad Little may introduce new teacher pay plan

 

Idaho Gov. Brad Little may soon introduce a five-year teacher pay plan providing more than $225 million in additional state support to boost teacher salaries.

A bill could be introduced when the House and Senate education committees complete work on school content standards and other administrative rules.

The plan is a product of Little’s education task force called “Our Kids, Idaho’s Future.”

The task force met in 2018 and recommended the expansion of a “career ladder” teacher pay plan to include a third pay tier for veteran teachers.

The Idaho Statesman reports, the plan proposed increasing state funding to establish $40,000 annual pay for beginning teachers, $50,000 for mid-level teachers and $60,000 for veteran educators.
