Navasota residents made a last ditch appeal Monday night to try to resurrect the issue of school district pay raises.
Many of those addressed the school board asking members to reconsider giving teachers and staff a three-percent salary increase. One group even offered up its own financial plan on how the district could fund the raises without breaking the budget. Currently, the district faces a budget deficit of more than $200,000.
The board announced last week it was taking pay raises off the table. It also changed its mind on layoffs. Initially, seven to nine positions were on the chopping block. The board decided instead that no jobs would be cut.
