A third of Sioux City's school district teachers could see a pay cut in their salary
One third of Sioux City's middle and high school teachers could see roughly a $4,800 cut in their yearly salary.
Superintendent Paul Gausman says by cutting some salaries the district can cut $1.4 million dollars from the budget without any staff layoffs.
Dr. Gausman elaborated more on the subject, "while this stipend pay is something secondary educators in our district have become accustomed to, it's not a typical practice by other districts. In fact, no other district in the state of Iowa set forth a stipend pay for teaching students in contractual hours already set forth in the master contract."
The school board also plans on discussing a new program offered to distinguished students that will help them excel in the future and further their education.
