Atlanta Public Schools Thursday announced it has approved a cost-of-living pay increase for full-time employees during fiscal 2015, which starts Tuesday and ends June 30, 2015.

Effective Tuesday, compensation for full-time district workers will be impacted as follows:

o employees hired during fiscal 2014 will receive a one-time bonus of 1 percent up to a maximum of $500

o employees hired in fiscal 2013 – 1 percent raise

o employees hired in fiscal 2012 – 2 percent raise

o employees hired in fiscal 2011 – 3 percent raise

o employees hired in fiscal 2010 – 4 percent raise

o employees hired in fiscal 2009 or earlier – 5 percent raise

For employees whose employment ended with the district and have returned, their pay increases will be based on their adjusted start date. For example, if an employee departed the district in 2002, but returned in 2012, the employee would receive a 2 percent increase.

“Our commitment was to closing the gap created by five years of frozen wages for employees,” said Superintendent Erroll B. Davis Jr. “The purpose of the differentiated pay increase is to reward employees who have stayed committed to APS under challenging circumstances.”
