By year’s end, jobs were saved, and county teachers, at both the Apalachicola Bay Charter and Franklin County schools, both got a boost in their take-home pay this school year of about $1,700.

The school board and the union ratified a one-year addendum to the existing three-year contract that will grant teachers at Franklin County School a $1,860 raise this school year, which translates to a net $1,662. Teachers at the charter school, who are not in the union, also received a similar raise.
