Despite limited resources, the district's offer provides professional support staff employees with a number of incentives, including:
•Thirty cents per hour salary increase to the base rate of pay, which is an average of a 2% salary increase for 2018-2019;
•A non-recurring supplement of $500 for each professional support staff employee who has been employed with the Osceola School District during the 2017-2018 school year and remains active through the end of the current school year;
•An Employee Recruitment Incentive equal to $250 for each job candidate referred to and who is successfully hired by the School District and successfully completes a minimum of 90 days of employment; and,
•Continued Board contributions for health insurance and a no-cost option for individual employee Health Insurance Plans, as well as the Center for Employee Health.

“Meeting the needs of current students and the potential to improve schools for all children relies on having outstanding professional support staff employees to reach our goals,” said School Board Chairman Ricky Booth. “My fellow Board Members and I value their dedication and commitment as critical team members on our district’s journey from good to great.”

It is the School Board’s desire to settle the contract with the Osceola County Education Association before the end of the current school year.
