Pay raises for Camp Verde, Beaver Creek teachers

Camp Verde teachers get 7.52% raise in new budget

CAMP VERDE – On July 10, the Camp Verde Unified School Districts governing board voted 4-to-0 to approve its fiscal year 2018-2019 budget.

Based on the district’s new budget, last year’s teachers will receive a 7.52-percent increase, which means that the average salary of all teachers employed by the district will increase about $3,200 from a year ago.

The teacher salary increase is mostly a result of money Gov. Doug Ducey promised the state’s schools.

The roughly $10.45 million budget includes about $9.2 million for the Maintenance and Operations fund, about $940,000 for its Classroom Site fund, and about $290,000 for its Unrestricted Capital Outlay fund.

Board member Kitty McDowell was not present to vote on the budget.
