Teacher pay raise proposed in Greenville SC as tax increase could come

The budget proposed for the Greenville County school district’s 2022-23 school year would give teachers a raise of at least $ 2,000.

Greenville County Schools Superintendent Burke Royster presented his proposed budget of $ 788,619,000 – an increase of about $ 66 million from the previous year – during a budget workshop meeting on Wednesday.

Included are pay increases for teachers and bus drivers, and an increase in the minimum pay for other district employees to $ 15 per hour.

Changes in state funding for public schools that state legislators are currently discussing would cover the increases. Though those changes have not been finalized, it is estimated that the district will receive about $ 369 million from the state, which is an increase of about $ 53 million from the previous year.
