PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The “Teacher Compensation Review Board” met for the first time since 2018 on Friday in Pierre. The board was mandated by the Blue-Ribbon Commission in 2015 that came up with the increased teacher pay recommendations that were later passed by the legislature.
Board member, Aberdeen Schools Superintendent Becky Guffin says the board needs to define their role.
Board member, Senator David Wheeler of Huron, says the legislature may have to weigh in again.
Wade Pogany, Executive Director of the Associated School Boards of South Dakota, told the group there are some basic questions they need to look at.
The board plans to meet again next month and come up with a report to the Governor and legislature sometime in September.
