SF teachers to receive salary boost as housing crisis continues

San Francisco teachers are expected to receive another wage increase early this year under an agreement between the educators union and the school district, according to a statement released by the union.

The United Educators of San Francisco shared the “good news” with its members last week, writing in its newsletter that it agreed with the San Francisco Unified School District to boost salaries for teachers and paraprofessionals by 2 percent.

UESF President Lita Blanc said at the school board meeting Tuesday that the salary boosts are “a step forward.”

“It’s not the whole picture, but it was a commitment for the future,” Blanc said.

The increase comes as both the SFUSD and UESF have shared concerns about the cost of living in San Francisco. In response, school district and Mayor’s Office are considering building affordable housing specifically for educators in San Francisco.

The wage hikes follow an agreement reached July 1 that raised salaries for teachers by five percent.

The additional salary boosts will be paid out beginning in January.
