Half Cent Sales Tax Increased Teacher Pay

With the half cent sales tax increase passed by the state legislature, Rapid City teachers have now received a 6.5 percent raise in pay. KOTA reports that this has helped lift the state teacher pay scale out of last place in the nation and provided some property tax relief to locals. Officials from Rapid City Area Schools are now looking to bring in top teachers to the area thanks to better teacher salaries.
