When it comes to looking for a job, salary is often at the top of everyone's list.
The Aiken County Public School Board is doing some research to see how compare with other school districts when it comes to competitive salaries.
At Tuesday night’s Board meeting, members got the “green" light to go ahead and conduct a competitive salary study to see how they could retain and recruit more employees.
Aiken County Public School District comptroller Trey Traxler says this study will give them a foundation to build on. "We are comparing Aiken salaries and look at other South Carolina Salaries, as well as Richmond and Columbia County, and see if we compare," he said.
