Board of Education Approves Salary Increase for 2024-25

The Bowling Green Board of Education has approved a 5% salary increase for all employees, both certified and classified for the 2024-2025 school year. First-year teachers with a bachelor’s degree will begin at $45,000 and the minimum hourly wage in BGISD will be $15.75/hour.

Approximately half of this salary increase is made possible with additional state funding provided through SEEK and transportation allocations. The remaining 2.5% is possible because of the district’s student enrollment growth over the last few years, local support, and efficient fiscal management. 

Based on the two-year budget approved by the 2024 General Assembly, a 5% salary increase will be available for only one of the two fiscal years. The decision to provide increased compensation for employees in 2024-2025 will limit the district’s ability to give significant raises in 2025-2026.
