INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Public Schools employees will receive raises, and some bonuses, in 2019 after the Indianapolis Public Schools Board of School Commissioners approved both the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees contract and a resolution for non-bargaining staff.

This is the first time some non-teaching employee groups have received a raise in more than ten years, according to IPS Media Relations Coordinator, Carrie Black.

Here are the details of the increase:

AFSCME Contract

  • Food center drivers will receive a four percent raise.
  • Food center workers will received a 22 percent raise.
  • All other eligible staff members will receive a three percent raise. Those in the three percent range, who have worked for IPS for more than ten years, will receive a one-time bonus of $500.

All non-bargained groups

  • IPS police will receive a ten percent raise.
  • Elementary and middle school food service satellite managers and assistants will receive an 11.5 percent raise.
  • High school food service managers and workers will receive a four percent raise.
  • All other eligible staff members will receive a three percent raise. Those in the three percent range, who have worked for IPS for more than ten years, will receive a one-time bonus of $500.

“Two months after giving our teachers a substantial raise, we’re excited to be able to reward our remaining 1,700 eligible employees with increased compensation for their hard work and dedication,” said Interim Superintendent Aleesia Johnson. “We hope to continue this path of increased investment in our IPS family in the years to come.”
