SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah teachers are waiting for a full $2,500 raise promised by state lawmakers.

The Utah Legislature failed to appropriate enough money for every teacher.

Earlier this year lawmakers appropriated $69 million, but legislative auditors say that's at least $7 million short of the figure needed.

The Ogden school district is giving its teachers $1,918 right now.

Davis School District is doling out $1,938.

Morgan School District is distributing $2,012. Weber and Box Elder school districts are giving their teachers $2,500 -- and keeping their fingers crossed that the full funding will eventually come from the state.
