PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - Teachers in Pueblo School District 60 will be receiving a 10 percent salary increase over the next two years, according to a release posted by the district Tuesday night.

The announcement comes after negotiations between the district and the Pueblo Education Association teachers union. The increase is expected to adjust the salary range for educators to $39,140 to $86,059 with a 5.2 percent salary increase for 2021-2022. The second year teachers will get a 4.8 percent salary increase, elevating the salary range to $40,157 to $88,296.

“We are so excited to be able to offer this financial package to show our appreciation to our educators after such a difficult, unprecedented year,” said Eric DeCesaro, Executive Director of Human Resources. “For our much appreciated educators, this represents a salary increase of 10 percent over the next two years.”

The agreement still needs to be voted on by the Association membership and formally approved by the D-60 Board of Education.
