Magistrate rules with Brevard Schools teachers could receive $1300 raise

BPS LogoBus drivers, janitors and district administrators might ultimately be the ones who benefit from a recent ruling on teacher raises.

After months of stalled negotiations between Brevard Public Schools and the Brevard Federation of Teachers, a special magistrate ruled in favor of the district’s proposed 4.5 percent raises.

While nothing is final, the ruling favors an approach that frees up enough money to give a similiar salary increase to other employees.

All together, the proposed raises would total $16.8 million. If approved, district employees would receive 4.5 percent increases, including 1.5 percent previously negotiated.
