Minot School Board proposes salary raise

By  | 

MINOT, N.D. - Minot Public School Board Members have proposed a $200 salary raise.

If passed, it will be the first raise the board has received in nearly 14 years.

Members are currently paid $400 a month.

Compared to other school boards in the state, including Bismarck, whose school board makes $750 a month and Fargo's at $1,000 a month, Minot School Board members say the raise is long overdue.

"We felt that the compensation at this point would be a financial hardship for a lot of people that work in regular hour and day-to-day jobs. So we didn't want to eliminate anyone from board service," says Jim Rostad, Minot Public School Board President.

The proposal will be discussed and voted on during the next school board budget meeting.
