Here is the latest offer from the School District of Osceola County

  • Average of $700 salary increase per employee based upon the requirements of state law and the performance pay salary schedule as previously bargained (Highly Effective Annual Contract teachers would receive $750. Effective Annual Contract teachers would receive $550. All teachers on PSC would receive $700.) In the first check all annual teachers would be given a portion of the $550 increase. If and when his/her evaluation is determined to be highly effective his/her salary will be changed to the $750 amount)
  • Starting salary level of $40100
  • Adjust the weight of the student growth portion of a teacher’s evaluation from 50% to 30%
  • More equitable extracurricular supplement schedule
  • Clinic for all employees to use at no cost to the employee. (Must use the school district’s insurance for this benefit) This is considered to be a benefit of $290 per employee.


The above firm offer would be contingent upon the OCEA dropping the current arbitration.

The District’s team was quite adamant that this will be the ONLY amount offered for next year and that since the previous year has ended, we will not receive any raise for last year. The School Board is NOT willing to consider a larger amount.

We need your guidance. Once the AFT survey site is working, I will post a brief survey for your input.  The team will base their decision on the outcome of this survey. We will meet again on July 30th in the OCEA office.
