School Board Approves Pay Raise for Nurses

The Savannah-Chatham Board of Education is trying to hold on to its school nurses. Today the board discussed several things on the agenda, including giving school nurses a pay raise. In the last few months, many nurses have resigned from the school district and officials say due to recent changes in the marketplace, their compensation packages are no longer competitive.

"They're leaving us for other employment in the city," said board president Hugh Golson. "We're not paying them as we should and we're trying to correct that."

The board approved the use of more than $140,000 to restructure the salaries of the nurses. The pay raise will start immediately.
