Chadron School Approves Pay Raise For Staff, Paras

CHADRON – The Chadron School Board last night approved a pay raise for secretaries, para-professionals, and administrative office staff. The proposal had been tabled last month to give board members more time to study it.

The proposal grants a 2.5% increase in base pay plus advancement to the next step on the salary scale for all but Level-2 special education paras. They received a 2.5% increase at mid-year over concerns about keeping the positions competitive in the local market.

The package is about $43,000 higher than last year for salaries and $65,000 more when health insurance and other benefits are included.

Under the new deal, Level 1 paras would start at $11.52 per hour, Para-2s would remain at $13.26, secretaries on 10-month contracts would begin at $11.77 an hour, and those with 12-month contracts would start at $12.02.
