Nashville, Tennessee (WSMV)-The Metro Council passed the budget for fiscal year 2022, and Mayor John Cooper signed the budget on Wednesday.

“For the city, this is the most historic investment we have made,” said Rachel Annerod, vice chairman of the Metro Nashville Board of Education.

Metro school teachers have the highest salaries in the state under an approved budget.

According to Elrod, the signed budget will also allow metro schools to have advocacy centers in all primary schools, increasing the number of phycologists in schools.

“Ophycologists in our school play a very important role not only in students with IEP, but also in the best environment for everyday student life and school,” says Elrod.

Following a tough grade during the pandemic, Elrod says this is an incredible change.

“Teacher shortages are a national epidemic that we can never escape, so it is imperative that we maintain good teachers,” Elrod said.
