Today is the start of a new school year here in VigoCounty and for the 16th year in a row, teachers will have a new contract. 

Vigo County School Corp. and Vigo County Teachers Association have reached a tentative collective bargaining agreement before the start of school.  Under the tentative agreement, VCSC teachers who were rated as “effective” or “highly effective” under a new, state-required evaluation system will receive a 2.2 percent raise to their base salary. 

98% of VigoCounty teachers fall into those categories. 

The corporation contribution to the retirement plan will increase by a quarter percent. 

Being evaluated as “ineffective” or “needs improvement,” means no raise. 

The corporation will use part of its cash balance to pay for the increases.

There have been no raises for the past two years just one time bonuses.
