SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Savannah Chatham County Board of Education met Wednesday evening to discuss a slight salary adjustment for new teachers.

They are considering raising salaries to around $16 more per year to bring the salary in line with the national prevailing wage determination.

"We feel the public are very important stakeholders in this process. We want to get the public involved and get their input so they can bring forth ideas we can use for creating our budget for the 2013-2014 school year." said Larry Jackson, Budget Director.

The school system will be holding a few budget workshops for the public next month.
