Increasing spending on teachers and aides has been the theme for a number of months now within the Clinton Board of Education and Schools Superintendent Curt Nettles says it's something he thinks needs looked at as well.
Tuesday morning Nettles told Regional Radio News it's about the time they should do a routine look at their salaries and see where they can improve.
Nettles agrees that starting pay for aides at $11 an hour is not sufficient and will look into creating a more equitable pay scale, especially for aides they ask more of.
In addition to assignments, the district will also look at the education level of their aides. He says they hope to attract well qualified staff for their kids, especially students in the formative years.
