The Round Rock ISD Board of Trustees approved a 2 percent Districtwide pay increase for the 2020-2021 school year at a meeting Thursday, May 14.

The salary increase will cost the District $8.6 million and is included in the 2020-2021 budget, slated to be presented for adoption in June.

“What makes Round Rock ISD one of the best school districts in the region and state is the dedicated educators and staff that work tirelessly to provide our students with the best education and services possible,” Superintendent Steve Flores, Ph.D. said. “We understand that to continue and build upon our success, we must remain committed to investing in our staff whenever possible in both the resources and compensation we provide. I commend our Board of Trustees for helping us continue to invest in our staff, which ultimately is an investment in our students and future.”

Teachers and librarians will see a $1,100 general pay increase and an adjustment to steps in years two to six to alleviate compression between years of service. Eligible pay grades will receive an increase equal to 2 percent of the pay range midpoint.

Also, the District will implement recommendations from the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) Pay System Review for salary adjustments for Instructional Support, Administrative Support, Operations Support, Technology, Instructional Exempt, and Business Exempt staff.
