The Hardin County Board of Education unanimously approved a 3% employee pay raise at its regular monthly meeting on Thursday, June 17, 2021.
“The Board truly understands and realizes that each of our HCS family members sacrifices so much for student success,” Hardin County Schools Superintendent Teresa Morgan said. “The last 15 months have been a wonderful example of their selflessness and dedication.”
The Board also approved a two-dollar-per-hour pay raise for bus drivers. The new starting rate for drivers is $16.90 per hour. It also took action to approve a $50 increase in the daily pay of a substitute teacher. The base pay for substitutes is dependent on the employee’s number of completed postsecondary education hours and certifications.
“Our staff is valued and appreciated,” Morgan added. “Each employee comes to work each day with a student-centered mindset. We are also fortunate to live in a community that has a high regard for its school staff members. I appreciate the Board’s work in recognizing our employees with these pay increases.”
