Raises Approved for Agua Fria Teachers

At their March 21, 2018 meeting, the Agua Fria Union High School District Governing Board approved a 3.75% raise for teachers and a $1,435 increase to teacher base salaries. The District will also provide additional teachers and sections in order to reduce class sizes as well as a number of other teacher incentives including, but not limited to, an increase in substitute teacher pay, teacher retention stipends, health insurance incentives and an increase to the hourly rate of pay for teachers performing work in a professional capacity outside of the classroom. This generous increase for the 2018-2019 school year is possible due to the November 2017 passage of the District’s Maintenance and Operations Override, which authorized the additional funding to be used for teacher compensation, class size reductions and technology. Superintendent Dr. Dennis Runyan said, “We are extremely appreciative of the community’s support in providing the additional funding making these enhancements possible for teachers.”
