Board approves salary schedule
August 12, 2021
The Thompson Falls School Board met last week to discuss the end of summer and upcoming school year. The principals mentioned enrollment being up. Though the number may be only up by 10, according to superintendent Bud Scully, the school is feeling positive. “We won’t know the final numbers until they actually show up,” said Scully, “but we like to emphasize the positive.” Scully explained that right now enrollment is sitting somewhere around 450 students for the district.
Another discussion was the 2021 salary schedule of elementary school principal Len Dorscher. According to Scully, last year he was earning $80,000 a year, and after the vote, he will be making $83,145.80. According to Scully, most employees have salary schedules that can be found on the school district website under the employment section. These determine how much of a raise each employee gets every year of employment, depending on the number of years they have and their level of training. This new 2021-2024 salary schedule was accepted by the board in June, and the raise was approved last Tuesday.
