Pierre School District employees will receive a 4 percent salary increase after board members approved a new contract Wednesday.
It's the first ongoing salary increase for district staff in about three years. In each of the past two years, employees have only received a one-time bonus. The raises take effect July 1.
The district's minimum salary for new teachers is now $31,920.
The raise in the one-year contract applies to teachers as well as other staff and administrators, including the superintendent.
Salaries and benefits will now cost the district $12.3 million.
