Teachers get pay raises


The new contract between the School Committee and the Walpole Teachers Association will provide pay raises the next three years and cost the town approximately $1.27 million, according to Superintendent Lincoln Lynch. The cost is within school budget levels set by Town Meeting, he said, and “is a fair and sustainable agreement which is affordable within the parameters of projected recurring revenues.” The contract covers 345 teachers and 80 support professionals, he said, and is retroactive to this past Sept. 1. The increases are broken into 1.5 percent hikes the first two years of the contract and 2 percent the third, he said.
