Danville school board OKs raises
DANVILLE — Twenty-seven Danville school administrators and nine non-union flat-salaried employees will receive raises this year.
The school board on Wednesday approved a 2014-15 salary schedule, which include the increases, totaling $85,895 — $73,084 for administrators, and $12,811 for the other employees.
