Page County Schools Superintendent proposes 2.9 percent increase from county
Page County Public Schools wants raises. Superintendent Donna Power told school board members Monday night she is including a 2-percent raise for all school employees in her fiscal 2014 proposal. The division has not seen a pay increase since fiscal 2008. The school system has unsuccessfully sought a 2-percent raise for all employees in its last two budget cycles, beginning in 2011. That year, the division asked the county for $13.9 million; instead, the county contributed $13.2 million — the same amount it contributed the previous year.
