Chalkbeat: Aiming at retaining more teachers, Aurora and its union will launch talks with this proposal on pay

Story excerpt:

"Aurora school district and union leaders will launch negotiations this week considering a proposal that includes $5,000 bonuses and bigger raises to teachers earlier in their careers.

The proposed changes to teacher pay are part of an effort to slow the turnover of veteran teachers.

The proposal, presented to the Aurora school board Tuesday, comes from a work group of 12 union and district leaders that met throughout 2019. The raises would be paid for by about $10 million from a local property tax increase that voters approved in 2018."
