School Board Approves Salary Increases

The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously Tuesday night to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule.

The 2022 salary schedule includes an average 4.9 percent salary increase for all Johnston County Public School teachers. Including step increases, the approved salary schedule contains a minimum of a 2.5% increase for all JCPS employees.

This adjusted salary schedule goes into effect Jan. 1, 2022. While these schedules are effective Jan. 1, 2022, permanent staff (full-time and part-time) employed by JCPS as of Dec. 1, 2021 are eligible for a retroactive salary bonus.

Also going into effect on Jan. 1, 2021 is a minimum hourly pay of $13 per hour, with that minimum increasing to $15 per hour on July 1, 2022.

Finance Director Stephen Britt said JCPS staff members can also expect to see additional bonuses over the course of the next seven months. The bonuses for classified staff could be up to $4,000, while bonuses for certified staff could be up to $5,300. These figures include the recently approved retention bonus given to JCPS employees.

The school system plans to create videos and upload them to their website later this week to further explain the increases employees will be receiving.

  1. I absolutely love the way they call the retroactive pay a “bonus”. It isn’t a bonus! It gets called a bonus because our politicians can’t pass a budget on time to save their lives.

  2. I have to wonder how much the county will be pocketing in interest for holding onto money “over the next 7 months”.
