All SCS teachers to receive 3 percent pay raise

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Shelby County Schools teachers can expect raises, according to Superintendent Dorsey Hopson.

Teachers were scheduled to receive three percent raises if they scored 3.0 or more on the Teacher Effectiveness Measure (TEM). The results of TEM were supposed to be released in November, but that release was delayed until December.

Instead of waiting on the TEM scores, Hopson decided to approve the three percent raises for every teacher.

"You are deserving of our gratitude for demonstrating your commitment to our students and patience throughout this frustrating process," Hopson said in a statement. "Please know we will continue to develop ways to reward other employee groups as our school system works to improve support for every team member and student."
