Don’t like what you see in the flowchart?

Get in touch with the members of the appropriations committee today and tell them any salary plan must be long-term, include all school employees, respect local control, and provide raises for veteran teachers.

Talking Points

Tell your story and remind legislators that everyone working in our public schools deserve a raise.

Include All School Employees

  • Some plans currently in circulation account for “classroom teachers,” but there are many additional personnel who are vital to the success of Florida’s students. Whether it is instructional personnel such as counselors, media specialists, and paraprofessionals or non-instructional personnel such as clerical, maintenance, and bus drivers, all Florida’s educators are deserving of a significant investment in their salary. 

Restore Local Control

  • A large part of the reason teachers’ pay has been stagnant are legislative restrictions regarding salary increases. Lawmakers need to repeal regulations that mandate how salary increases must be provided.
