BRANDON, Miss. (AP) — The Rankin County School Board has approved 4 percent salary increases for cafeteria workers, assistant teachers, bus drivers and administrators effective July 1.

The Clarion-Ledger reports (http://on.thec-l.com/1Hhrnxj ) schools superintendent Lynn Weathersby will see his annual salary increase from $153,900 to about $160,000.

All teachers will receive a legislature-mandated raise after the governor signed a bill last legislative session raising all educators' salaries by $3,500 this coming year.

The last time Weathersby had a salary increase was in January of 2014. The raise was 2 percent.

Assistant superintendents are the highest paid employees in the district excluding Weathersby. Each made a total of $115,470 last year, putting their new salary amounts at $120,088 with the raises.

Last year's total compensation for principals in the district ranged from $80,588 to $106,902.
