Did you hear? Teacher Assistants are SAFE! Driver's Ed is back.
A quick, important message from the NC PTA:
Thank you to all the parents across the State who reached out to legislators on the importance of continued funding for teacher assistants and driver’s education. Your voices were heard. The budget approved by both the House and Senate last week continues funding for teacher assistants and driver’s education.
The budget also included a $750 bonus for teachers and raised starting teacher pay to $35,000. Funding for textbooks and digital resources increased to $52.4 million in fiscal year 2015-2016 and $62 million in fiscal year 2016-2017.
You can review the full budget documents under the News and Information section of the General Assembly homepage found here.
