Alabama is heading for another record-setting education budget after the Senate passed an $8.8 billion spending bill.
The budget includes pay increases for teachers and staff, plus bonuses for special education teachers and speech therapists. The spending represents a 6.5% increase over the current year’s budget of $8.3 billion.”
With support and involvement from SHAA’s membership, leadership, and lobbyist, we were able to advocate successfully for a salary supplement for SLPs working in public schools. Thanks to everyone who wrote to their legislators!
