Hopi teachers get $1,000-a-year pay raises

POLACCA, Ariz. The Hopi Junior/Senior High School governing board voted unanimously this week to raise its teacher salaries $1,000 across the board for the next school year.

Paul Reynolds, superintendent of Hopi Junior/Senior High School, said the raise will keep Hopi High competitive with area schools.

Public schools are anticipating giving teachers raises because of Proposition 301, which state voters passed in November. That funding mechanism will allocate millions of dollars toward public schools with 40 percent going toward teacher raises.

A starting teacher at a BIA school can make as much as $27,425 per year. The starting salary of a teacher at Hopi High was $25,456 this past year and will jump to $26,456 next year. Teachers also receive annual increases in salary based on their years of experience and their degrees...

Indian School agreement approved

The Albuquerque, New Mexico, City Council on Monday approved a 30-year agreement which one Pueblo official said would set a nationwide precedent.

The agreement calls on the state's 19 Pueblos to submit future development of the jointly-owned old Indian School property to city land use regulations. In exchange, the city will provide fire, water, and other municipal services to the site, which is in downtown Albuquerque.

The Pueblos have to approve the agreement and the Department of Interior would also have to agree to it.
