Employees of the Waupaca School District will see an bump in their pay next year. That’s after the school board Friday approved a two and a half percent wage increase for all district employee groups. The board was looking at three wage increase options for the district after the Consumer Price Index released by the Wisconsin Employment Relations Committee came out at 2.13 percent. The district examined packages that included a 2 percent wage increase, a 2.13 percent increase, or a 2.5 percent increase. The board chose the 2.5 percent option, saying in both other options, some teachers would have realized an actual pay decrease because of the way the increase is applied to the salary matrix. Total wages for the district will increase by about 340-thousand dollars next year.
