Staff in the Concordia R-2 school district will be seeing a bit of a raise in the 2011-2012 school year.  Superintendent Mary Beth Scherer says the board tried to give the teachers at least some of what they didn’t get last year.

Also at Thursday night’s school board meeting, they decided to give teachers who have earned a master’s degree an additional 500-dollar raise.  In other business, the board got a preliminary look at next year’s budget, and also heard updates to staff and student handbooks.
