RICHMOND — Teachers at the West Contra Costa Unified School District will soon be the highest paid in the county following a board resolution to increase salaries by 15 percent over two years.
The district approved numerous agreements with teachers, administrators, supervisors and unrepresented employees at its board meeting on Wednesday night.
Overall, employees at WCCUSD will see salary increases of at least 10 percent by the 2020-2021 school year.
“We made a promise that we would do everything we could to increase employee salaries so they can better afford to live in this area and we were able to fulfill that promise,”
Superintendent Matthew Duffy said in a press release. “Our employees deserve to be paid like professionals and I firmly believe that this will help us recruit and retain the best and brightest for our students.”

Richmond High School is set to unveil the opening of its “Internationals Academy” on Thursday, which is described as “an academic pathway to college and English fluency for newcomer students.”
The program, a partnership between the West Contra Costa Unified School District and the Internationals Network, aims to “provide students new to the country the opportunity to adapt to a new culture, learn English and take classes that prepare them for college and beyond,” the district said.
It will be the only program of its kind in Contra Costa County and just the third west of the Mississippi River, and is designed to serve “recently arrived immigrant and refugee English Learners,” the district said.
