Blytheville school board raises employee pay

BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) - Blytheville school board approved pay raise for employees of the district.

Monday the school board met and agreed to add $1.25 to all employee pay, except the superintendent and bus drivers.

The bus drivers received a pay raise in the summer to help get more drivers for the district.

Employees of the school district will receive a check with the additional money from their work in July to October.

Then starting in November the pay raise will go straight into the employees' paychecks.

Superintendent Richard Atwill said the school has not done a pay raise in a while and he is pleased the board approved the raises.
