TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)-The Tippecanoe School Corporation has come to a tentative agreement with the teachers union on their contracts for the next two years.

Due to a stipulation in the Indiana State Budget all teachers in the state of Indiana must have a starting salary of $40,000 a year.

Superintendent for TSC Scott Hanback says a couple of years ago TSC raised teachers starting salaries to the $40,000 mark.

So now, with new money from the state legislature, the school corporation will be able to raise teachers' starting pay even more.

"We were able to add on top of that so our starting teacher salary next year will be close $44,000 and then just over $46,000 dollars the second year of this contract," said Hanback.  

The Tippecanoe Education Association President Mary Eisert in a statement said "TEA is very pleased with the new monies allocated by the state and the tentative agreement with the school corporation. "

The TSC school board will ratify the tentative agreement next week at its regular meeting. To read the TEA's contract.
