Boyle BOE approves raises for all district staff

Published 4:00 pm Wednesday, June 12, 2024

The Boyle County Board of Education approved a 3% salary increase for all district staff. This decision reflects the board’s commitment to maintaining Boyle County as one of the highest-paid districts in the state.

Despite the legislative passage of a 4% increase in the Support Education Excellence in Kentucky (SEEK) funding, the additional funds only supported a 1.5% pay raise. Boyle County Schools have managed to achieve this significant raise through prudent financial management and being exceptional stewards of taxpayer dollars. Through careful financial management and strategic planning, the district has maintained a healthy fund balance, allowing the prioritization and investment in staff compensation. Since 2018, Boyle County has achieved a total of 16% in pay increases for its staff.

“We are dedicated to recognizing and rewarding the hard work and dedication of our staff,” said Mark Wade, Superintendent of Boyle County Schools. “Our educators and support personnel are the backbone of our district. By offering competitive salaries and an outstanding culture, we aim to ensure that Boyle County remains a top destination for talented educators.”

The Boyle County Board of Education remains steadfast in its mission to deliver high-quality education and support for all students. By investing in our staff and expanding extracurricular opportunities, we are building a brighter future for our district and community.
