Del Valle employees get pay raises

The Del Valle Education Association and its #FightFor15 campaign were rewarded – and so were all other Del Valle employees – when the school board on Tuesday night approved a new, minimum salary of $16 an hour for bus drivers and $15 an hour for all other support staff.

And bilingual teachers got a $4,500 stipend.
