Give Cobb County Teachers a Raise

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Cobb County teachers have not been granted a meaningful raise in the last decade,  yet the administrators and the School District continue to ask them to do more with less. Once again Superintendent Chris Ragsdale has declined to give teachers a raise and is instead giving teachers a one-time bonus of 1.1%. 

The Cobb County millage rate has not changed since 2007 when it was reduced from 19.00 to 18.90 where it has remained. The Cobb County School Board has the authority to raise the millage rate to 20.00, the Cobb County designated max. This would enable the district to give each of its 15,000 permanent employees a 2.5% increase in their salary. It would only cost the average homeowner $80 more in school taxes per year. 

The School Board will not make this change on their own. They need to know that the public supports a nominal tax increase in order to retain the high quality, talented teachers that Cobb County has become known for. Please consider signing this petition to show the School Board that they have your support in pushing for an increase in the millage rate to the maximum of 20 mills. 

Our teachers need your support! Voice your support here and continue to reach out to your Cobb County School Board representative to let them know that you support this initiative.
