The plan, still pending approval from the Broken Arrow Board of Education, will give all the district's teachers a salary that is $1,720 above the state minimum, according to a district news release.
The district said in its news release the new pay scale for a teacher with a bachelor's degree would start at $41,348 in the first year. That number includes salary, the district's retirement contribution and life and disability insurance.
The raise marks an additional $4.2 million investment in teacher salaries.
