The Crossett School District’s Board of Education moved Monday to set teacher salaries at the new state-mandated base pay and to freeze them while administrators work on broader pay issues.

As part of a larger education reform move, the Arkansas General Assembly mandated that starting pay for teachers be set at $50,000 annually, and required that all teachers receiving more than that receive a $2,000 annual raise.

At Monday’s board meeting, Superintendent Anthony Boykin recommended the board adopt a salary schedule for all K to 12 teachers that reflects those changes.
