AISD announces pay hike for all employees

Friday, June 14, 2019 by Tai Moses

With the passage of House Bill 3, the state public school finance reform bill, AISD has announced a pay increase for all employees that the district says is one of the highest in its history. On Wednesday, Superintendent Paul Cruz announced the 7 percent salary increase for teachers and staff with more than five years of experience, and a 6 percent increase for all other staff. Special ed teachers will get a $500 stipend increase while bilingual teachers will get a $1,000 stipend increase. All increases go into effect on July 1. Funding from HB 3 will also give some much-needed help to AISD’s budget deficit, reducing it from $60 million down to about $5 million.
