BENTONVILLE -- The School District's warehouse and West High School stadium projects moved forward Monday with the hiring of firms that will work on them.

Classified raises

The Bentonville School Board voted 6-0 Monday to grant 2.25 percent raises to classified staff members. The raise doesn’t apply to about 69 bus drivers who were hired on a pay scale higher than what drivers are hired on today. Classified employees voted on whether to accept the raise; 545 voted for it and nine voted against it, according to Janet Schwanhausser, district finance director.

The board previously granted 2.25 percent raises to certified staff members, including teachers, last month. All raises are retroactive to July 1.
