LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Lee County teachers are poised to get a raise. Under a tentative agreement, teachers will receive a one percent pay raise and one percent bonus this year.
Next year, the contract calls for Lee County to reinstate elementary art and music teaching positions cut during the budget crunch.
Teachers are slated to vote on the contract next week. If they approve the deal, school board members will vote on the contract October 19th.
