Thank An Educator

May 3-7, 2021 ~ Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week has never meant quite so much...

Citrus County's educators have met the challenges of teaching during a pandemic with determination, creativity, patience, and care--all to keep students safe and learning. There is no doubt that our public school employees have truly gone above and beyond to support students and the community as a whole. Here's your opportunity to show appreciation for the unique contributions of the teachers and school staff who are making a difference every day!

Submit a shout-out to the teacher or school staff member that you'd like to recognize and we'll deliver your message to them along with a small token of appreciation!

Settlement Reached!

Following several weeks of ongoing bargaining discussion, CCEA and CCSD have reached a tentative agreement on the 2020-21 Economic package. The settlement utilizes the state’s Teacher Salary Allocation funds ($2.4million) along with additional Board funds to achieve a $46,000 minimum salary for all instructional staff, while ensuring that every instructional employee receives AT LEAST a $1,500 improvement. CCEA Support will receive .46/hour in addition to the annual step increase which has already been applied.

The Teacher Salary Allocation: What You Should Know

As is true of every year's bargaining efforts, CCEA is dedicated to ensuring all educators in Citrus Schools receive substantive and equitable pay raises. Each year seems to present a different set of challenges--performance pay requirements, Best & Brightest bonuses, etc--and this year is no exception.
