A win for school librarians in Georgia
Thank you to everyone who voiced your support for media specialists and all certified educators to be part of the pay raise!
Thanks to your actions, we were able to include ALL certified educators in the House FY20 budget.
Yesterday, the House Appropriations K-12 Subcommittee announced that librarians will receive a raise of $2,775 along with other certified staff. This also includes school psychologists, school social workers, school counselors, media specialists and special education specialists.
Every $10 we raise helps us reach 1,000 more Americans to support school librarians with petitions and political actions like these.
Please make a $10-$25 donation today!
We will continue to follow this budget through to the final approval but thanks to your dedication and support we have made great progress for all educators in Georgia. If we need further action, we will reach out again. Thank you for supporting teacher-librarians and all certified staff in Georgia.

Please join PAGE in thanking the House Appropriations Committee, particularly House Appropriations Chair Terry England (R-Auburn) and Education Appropriations Subcommittee Chair Robert Dickey (R-Musella) for including school psychologists, school social workers, school counselors, media specialists, and special education specialists in a historic pay raise. Instead of allocating a 2 percent raise on the state educator base pay of approximately $34,000 for some educators, the FY20 budget, approved by the House subcommittee this morning, awards certificated educators a pay raise of $2,775.
