The study will begin on January 1st and the district expects to have results in May.


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Salaries and benefits for employees of a local school district could be going under the microscope along with other districts in the state.

The Eau Claire Area School District is looking to conduct a compensation study for all employees not just teachers.

This is the first time salary and benefits for all employees have been compared to other districts in the state. The district hopes the findings will help it attract and keep the best employees.

"At the end of the day we want to make sure that any decision we make as a board is fiscally justified," said School Board President, Dr. Carol Craig. "It's so we understand why we're increasing; decreasing or keeping the same, our compensation structures and that we have data to justify that."

The study will cost the district about $45,000 and they hope to have data back in about six months. The school board will vote to approve the study at Monday's meeting.
