      For the first time in years, some Virginia teachers will get a pay raise, WTOP reports.

      The state's 2014 fiscal year budget includes over $70 million for the state's share of a 2 percent salary boost for public school staff. A local match is required, so it was optional for school divisions to accept the funds.

      All D.C. area school divisions have accepted the deal. Stafford County will offer the biggest raise at 3.5 percent.

      The state funds will be available this summer and some districts may provide salary increases in August. All increases must be given by January 1, 2014.

      Here's the breakdown for local school districts:

      - Alexandria - 3 percent - Arlington - 2.7 percent - Carroll - 3 percent - Fairfax - 2 percent - Fairfax City - 2 percent - Falls Church - 3 percent - Fauquier - 2 percent - Loudoun - 2 percent - Manassas - 2 percent - Manassas Park - 2 percent - Prince William - 2 percent - Stafford - 3.5 percent
