The Woodside Elementary School District board voted on Tuesday, June 4, to give teachers a 2% raise for the 2019-20 school year.
In a 5-0 vote, the board approved the pay increase for the Woodside Teachers' Association, said Superintendent Beth Polito in an email. The raise compensates for cost-of-living increases, according to the contract. Staff members will receive a $1,000 off-schedule bonus, to be applied in the event that Gov. Gavin Newsom's budget includes a 1% pension relief for school district contributions to STRS, or the California State Teachers' Retirement System, according to the contract.
There will be no increase in the district's contribution toward the cost of health, dental and vision plan premiums for the 2019-20 school year.
The pay increase will be effective on July 1 and in place through June 30, 2020.
Teachers' union representatives declined to comment.
