Brookings School Board approves 7.2% pay raise for teachers

The Brookings School Board approves the Master Agreement with teachers for the 2023-2024 school year. It includes a 7.2-percent increase in base pay.

In addition, starting pay for first-time teachers new to the district will increase from $46,880 to $50,000.

The 7.2% pay hike comes on the heels of a seven-percent increase in state aid to education passed by the legislature this year.
