Governor Ducey, President Yarbrough and Speaker Mesnard Announce A Budget Deal

Includes 20 Percent Teacher Pay Increase By 2020

PHOENIX — Governor Doug Ducey, Senate President Steve Yarbrough and House Speaker J.D. Mesnard released the following joint statement today announcing a deal on a 20 percent pay raise for Arizona teachers.

“Earlier this month, we stood shoulder to shoulder, in unity with the education community, to announce a plan for a 20 percent increase in teacher pay by school year 2020. Today, we are pleased to announce that this plan is a reality. Arizona is delivering on its commitment to our students and teachers.

"We are also restoring recession-era cuts to increase funding for schools and putting more money into the classroom — flexible dollars for superintendents to use for support staff pay increases, update antiquated curriculum and improve school infrastructure — without raising taxes. This plan benefits our children’s education across the state, and we are working through the weekend to introduce a budget early next week and pass it shortly thereafter.”
