How three local school districts plan to increase pay for teachers

The latest is San Antonio ISD. The district’s board of trustees approved raises for its staff Monday night during a board meeting. Northside ISD greenlit a salary increase for all full-time employees a week ago. And North East ISD will also pay it’s staff a little more this fall, too.

The Board of Trustees at SAISD approved a 2% general pay increase for all full-time, permanent employees. That decision was made Monday night during a specially called board meeting at its district offices. Trustees also boosted starting teacher pay to $58,400, and agreed to bump stipends for bilingual and special education teachers to $5,000 dollars.

These benefits, in addition to others, will cost the district more than $10 million dollars. The superintendent says major cuts over the past three years have allowed them to do this. This comes after the district implemented its “right-sizing” plan that resulted in the closure of several schools. 

North East ISD’s plan does not include pay raise for its staff. Instead, trustess approved a one-time retention supplement of 1.5% to be paid in November. Full-time teachers and librarians will receive $917, while other eligible employees will get their’s based on their annualized pay grade midpoint. All other temporary and substitute employees are not included.

These are the three districts to approve a compensation package. KENS 5 plans to reach out to other districts in the area about any future increase in pay.
