The Crossett School District’s business manager told the board of education Monday that he would be watching the upcoming legislative session to see if the General Assembly votes to require further teacher raises.

Business Manager Norman Hill had already told the board that the district was absorbing an additional $230,000 in annual payroll costs this year after the state cut off the supplement that it was sending for previously mandated pay raises.

“The state stopped paying for state-mandated raises,” Hill said. “They paid for it through last year, but this year they refused to pay for it any more.”
