D60 EDUCATORS TO RECEIVE SALARY INCREASE OF 10 PERCENT OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS
After a series of highly productive negotiations throughout the Spring, Pueblo School District 60 and the Pueblo Education Association teachers union have reached a tentative full and total 2-year agreement that includes a significant compensation increase for educators.
As a first for the District, this 2-year agreement gives educators a 5.2 percent salary increase and elevates the District’s educator salary range to $39,140 to $86,059 for 2021-2022.
The second year of this agreement gives educators a 4.8% salary increase and elevates the District’s educator salary range to $40,157 to $88,296.
“We are so excited to be able to offer this financial package to show our appreciation to our educators after such a difficult, unprecedented year,” said Eric DeCesaro, Executive Director of Human Resources. “For our much appreciated educators, this represents a salary increase of 10 percent over the next two years.”
These salary increases will also keep D60 competitive with school districts in our region, allowing D60 to better recruit and retain the best teachers for our community.
The agreement is expected to be voted upon by the Association membership and formally approved by the D60 Board of Education.
