JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Some top administrators and professional staff members at Florida State College at Jacksonville are getting salary boosts, some as high as 30 percent.

The school's board of directors recently approved more than $300,000 in raises. The salary hikes follow a recent 8 percent tuition hike for students.

A school spokeswoman says the raises ensure that salaries are competitive with other institutions, such as Broward College and Daytona State College.
