A) and establishes payment scales guaranteeing cost of living increases

verb 'establishes' does not agree with the subject 'school board ', and more ..

(B) and to establish payment scales that would guarantee cost of living increases
Lack of parallelism - infinitive 'to establish' is unnecessary. Need a verb

(C) and establishes payment scales to guarantee cost of living increases
verb 'establishes' does not agree with the subject 'school board '

(D) and establish payment scales to guarantee cost of living increases

Correct

(E) to establish payment scales that would guarantee cost of living increases
Lack of parallelism
