In support of all BISD staff, BISD’s Board of Trustees unanimously voted on Thursday, June 7 to award an average of 2.25 percent pay raise to all staff. (This raise represents more than $2.83 million.) For teachers working 187 days, this is an annual increase of $1,350. The starting salary for a first-year teacher with no experience is $53,000.
In addition to the raise, the Board reviewed data from the Texas Association of School Boards that identified three employee groups in BISD’s pay structure that need additional salary adjustments to move them closer to the DFW market levels. These groups are teachers with 11 to 23 years of experience, assistant principals, and paraprofessionals. (The adjustments for these three groups equal more than $509,000 and bring these groups closer to market levels.)
Staff will be notified once individual salaries are posted in MUNIS Employee Self Service.
