Therefore, the School Board has made an offer to the district's instructional personnel valued at $8.2 million in salaries and supplements.
Despite very limited resources, the district's offer provides teachers with incentives for their commitment, their time given to their students and schools, and their health, including:

• An average of 2% salary increase per instructional employee for 2018-2019 based upon the requirements of state law and the following performance pay salary schedule:

    o $1,200 for instructional employees whose final summative evaluation rating is “Highly Effective.”

    o $900 for instructional employees whose final summative evaluation rating is “Effective.”

    o $1,150 for employees on the Grandfathered salary schedule whose final summative evaluation rating is “Highly Effective.”

    o $850 for instructional employees on the Grandfathered salary schedule whose final summative evaluation rating is “Effective.”

• A non-recurring supplement of $1,000 for each instructional employee who has been employed with the Osceola School District during the 2017-2018 school year and remains active through the end of the current school year. This additional supplement is to recognize and reward all teachers for the additional service they have provided this year as the district’s student population grew significantly as a result of Hurricane Maria.

• An Employee Recruitment Incentive equal to $250 for each job candidate referred to and who is successfully hired by the School District and successfully completes a minimum of 90 days of employment.

• Continued Board contributions for health insurance and a no-cost option for individual employee Health Insurance Plans, as well as the Center for Employee Health.

“Of all the work that occurs at every level of our education system, the interaction between teacher and student is the primary determinant of student success,” said School Board Chairman Ricky Booth. “My fellow Board Members and I have the highest respect for educators, and we see this compensation package as an investment in our dedicated employees who are making a difference in our classrooms every day.”

It is the School Board’s desire to settle the contract with the Osceola County Education Association before teachers leave for summer break.
