PIERRE | Pierre School District employees will receive a 4 percent salary increase after board members approved a new contract Wednesday.

KCCR radio reports that it's the first ongoing salary increase for district staff in about three years. In each of the past two years, employees have only received a one-time bonus. The raises take effect July 1.

The district's minimum salary for new teachers is now $31,920.

The raise in the one-year contract applies to teachers as well as other staff and administrators, including the superintendent.

Salaries and benefits will now cost the district $12.3 million.
