The public school board says there will be no pay bonuses in the next budget and no salary bumps for its non-bargaining unit staff.

The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) faced criticism last year when it permitted salary increases or bonuses for about 210 exempt staff even though money was tight.

But this time, exempt staff won't get any salary increase in 2014, the board decided.

CBE exempt employees include positions such as finance experts, administrative assistants and human resources advisors.

The salary range framework for those staff members is being adjusted upward by two per cent to allow for future salary adjustments should funding be approved by the board.

But that will affect only new hires, and not in all cases, the CBE says.

Unionized staff will continue to get any salary increases stipulated by their contracts.

And superintendents will not get any pay raise in 2014.
