All but 3 of Connecticut's 165 school districts will raise minimum teacher salaries to at least $20,000 under a 1986 law that provides state funds for--but does not mandate--the raises, according to a final report on the law by the state department of education.

The report this month by Gerald N. Tirozzi, commissioner of education, confirmed an earlier estimate by the Connecticut Education Association. (See Education Week, March 18, 1987.)

According to the new report, many districts will raise salaries for veteran teachers, and will reduce the number of steps in their salary schedules to make it easier for teachers to advance to higher salary levels.
