TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A pay raise has been approved for teachers in the Tucson Unified School District.

Base salary for first-year teachers will go from  $34,200 to $35,000.  When you add the $500 increase for all teachers, that makes it $35,500.

Performance pay of $3,000 could bring the total to $38,500 for first-year teachers.

The pay raises will cost the district $2.1 million and will come from the Maintenance and Operation fund as well as savings from department-level reductions.
