The Round Rock ISD Board of Trustees approved a 3.5 percent Districtwide pay increase for employees for the 2019-2020 school year at its May 16 Regular Board Meeting.
The salary increase will cost the District $14.2 million and is included in the 2019-2020 budget, slated to be adopted in June.
“Our teachers, campus and District staff at all levels are the backbone of our District and, as a Board, we are dedicated to serving in their best interests, which includes providing competitive compensation,” Board President Chad Chadwell said. “We pledge to continue investing in our staff as they remain dedicated to serving our community and impacting the lives of thousands of students each day.”
Teachers, librarians, and nurses (RN) will see a $1,800 general pay increase and an adjustment to steps in years one to 10 to alleviate compression between years of service. Counselors and other licensed professionals will see a $2,212 general pay increase.
Other pay grades will receive an increase equal to 3.5 percent of the pay range midpoint.
“We understand the importance of investing in our staff and know that by investing in them we are investing in our students and their futures,” Superintendent Steve Flores, Ph.D. said. “We are fortunate to have some of the best educators, professionals and employees in the nation and be in a position to provide them with a compensation increase in appreciation for their talent and all they do for our students. This Districtwide increase would not be possible without our Board of Trustees and their continued support of our staff at all levels.”
