A former St. Clair County school teacher is suing the school board claiming they failed to pay him his proper salary for the last 20 years.

Frederick William Hoaf filed a lawsuit on Sept. 9 in St. Clair County Circuit Court, claiming the Board of Education of Belleville Township High School District 201 failed to pay him appropriately for his masters degree.

Hoaf alleges that from 1995 to 2015 he was certified with a masters degree in higher education and should have been compensated as so. Instead, he claims he was paid as a teacher holding a bachelors degree. 


Hoaf is suing the Board of Education for $50,000 plus coast of the suit. Hoaf is being represented in this case by William L. Wimmer of Belleville.
