Celebrating the history of

Ohio County and Rising Sun


May 5th, 1966

The Rising Sun-Ohio County School Board met in special session April 19th with all members present. A request from members of the Bear Branch community to assume responsibility of the Freedom School building was considered by the board. A request from the Rising Sun Ministerial Association to use the Rising Sun Elementary Gym for a Song Festival was approved with the association paying for janitorial services. The board discussed a salary proposal which was presented earlier in the month by the Ohio County Classroom Teachers Association. The present salary schedule ranges from $5,100 to $7,050 in 20 years for Bachelors Degree teachers and $5,300 to $8,900 in 30 years for Masters degree teachers, and the proposed scheduled ranges from $5,400 to $7,050 in 15 years for Bachelors Degree teachers and $5,700 to $9,000 in 25 years for Masters Degree teachers. Although the proposed schedule was not accepted by the board, the adjustments in the salary schedule were made: an average increase of $125 for less than 10 years experience, and a $50 increase for the Masters Degree with 10 years or more experience.
