Teacher pay bill advances through Nevada Senate

CARSON CITY — Salary increases tied to professional development would be outlined for Clark County teachers through collective bargaining agreements under a bill introduced Wednesday in the Nevada Senate.

Sponsored by Majority Leader Aaron Ford, D-Las Vegas, Senate Bill 547 requires the Clark County School District to establish through negotiations a salary incentive program for professional growth.

The agreement would set terms for teachers or principals who complete continuing education or professional development courses at their own expense to receive a salary increase if the programs are completed successfully.

The bill was referred to the Senate Finance Committee with five days left in the legislative session.
