Governor Scott Sends Letter to Florida Superintendents Regarding Teacher Pay Raises

Tallahassee, Fla. - Today, Governor Rick Scott sent a letter to all Florida superintendents thanking the 16 superintendents and school boards who have worked together to negotiate with unions and ratify collective bargaining agreements for teachers that resulted in pay raises. He also spoke with Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart today to ask her to work with the 51 county school districts who have not reached final agreements to encourage a quick resolution to the final teacher pay raise amount in these districts.

Governor Scott said, "For those districts that have not yet finalized collective bargaining agreements on teacher pay raises, I have asked the Commissioner of Education to provide any support and guidance superintendents need to come to a final agreement quickly. Florida teachers deserve a salary increase, and they should have the benefit of knowing their new salary level as soon as possible so they can best plan for their futures."
