PORTLAND — Portland school officials today refuted statements made by several members of the City Council on Monday stating that Portland teachers in fiscal 2013 will be getting overall pay raises of 4.5 percent.

In truth, the pay raises will be 1.9 percent, Superintendent Jim Morse said.

He said the 4.5 percent that councilors discussed relates to pay raises that will occur in fiscal 2014, according to a contract agreement between the district and the Portland Education Association. The contract covers Sept. 1, 2011, to Aug. 31, 2014.

Morse said the pay raises in fiscal 2013, beginning on July 1, include step increases and additional raises awarded for obtaining additional academic training, so-called “lane changes.” He said there is no across-the-board cost-of-living increase.

In fiscal 2014, he said, teachers will get cost-of-living increases as well as step increases and raises due to lane changes.
