Cape School Board to consider unfreezing salaries, increasing school lunch price
Frozen salaries in the Cape Girardeau School District could begin to thaw.
The Cape Girardeau School Board tonight will consider a total salary increase of 1.24 percent for certified positions -- teachers and administrators -- for the 2011-12 school year. Teachers would receive a combined 2.53 percent raise, and administrators would earn 2.38 percent more under the plan. Also on tonight's agenda, a proposed 5-cent increase to the price of school lunches. New tougher federal nutrition guidelines are driving the increase.
The board holds a work session at 5 p.m., with the regular meeting to follow at 6 p.m. at the district office, 301 N. Clark Ave.
