After a two year freeze Wausau teachers will now get a raise.
Wausau school leaders met Monday and approved a 2.07% raise for the next school year.
Leaders also approved a new starting salary of $35,211 for new hires.
The Wausau School Board president says both parties are happy with the outcome.
"Both our teachers and our administration have sacrificed a lot and have been willing to sacrifice in order for us to balance our budget and I'm most grateful to them and I'm very happy that we're able to start compensating them financially and as we move forward the Wausau School District wants to be a place people want to work and I see us moving and continually working to make our district better," said Wausau School Board President, Michelle Schaefer.
The president says the contract is good for one year.
