According to the Indy Star, Indianapolis Public Schools is investing close to $30 million within the next two years to give its teachers a well deserved pay raise. This is the largest pay raise in district history and makes IPS one of the best paying school districts in Indiana.
By fall of 2020, the starting salary for teachers within the IPS school district will be $47,000. Additionally, $1.2 million will be invested in pay raises for non-teaching employees; such as bus drivers, custodians, and food service workers. Many of these workers have already received raises–which for most, was their first raise in over a decade.
