Tucson Unified School District decided Tuesday night on a pay plan to increase teacher pay and support staff funding that resulted from the state-wide walkout.

The district is receiving $15,095,903, and the state left it up to the districts to decide on whether all the money would go to teacher raises.

Out of four scenarios presented to the board during their meeting, the board members voted 3-2 on the second scenario. 

The plan will apply $11 million to teachers and $3.8 million to all other support staff. 

Here is a breakdown of the plan: 



Under this plan, the district is over its budget nearly $200,000.
