Danville, VA - The Danville School Board may soon give themselves a big raise.

Currently each member makes $600 a year, but in a public hearing Thursday night, they are discussing possibly raising that to $10,000 a year.
The current rate was set back in 1950. The School Board says they would increase their compensation to match city council's raise, which they approved on Tuesday.
If approved, the new pay would take effect next summer. School board could vote as early as Friday morning.
