JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott is pushing for a quick resolution to teacher pay raises across Florida.
In a letter to district superintendents and Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart, the governor asked her to work with the 51 county school districts that have not finalized those raises.
Baker and Union counties, according to the governor's office, have reached deals with teachers on raises.
Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns counties are still in negotiations.
St. Johns County agreed to a 4.7 percent pay hike. The deal is in the ratification process.
Clay County teachers agreed to an average increase of $2,000. The school board is expected to vote on the pay raise at Tuesday night's meeting.
Duval County Schools spokesperson Marsha Oliver said the district is still negotiating with the Duval Teachers Union and expect an agreement prior to the school board meeting in December.
