Florida Teacher Pay Raises

Florida Governor Rick Scott is still lobbying for teacher pay raises.

Yesterday, he sent a letter to the state's superintendents.

28 districts have finalized pay raises, 15 have reached tentative agreements.

The Governor called on the remaining districts to finish negotiations, so teachers can start receiving raises by the start of next year.

Last spring, state lawmakers set aside $480 million for an across-the-board pay raise for teachers.

School districts were given lee-way in how to hand out the raises.
