Conroe ISD Approves Raises for Teachers

Conroe ISD Approves Raises for Teachers

Wednesday, June 19, 2019

We’re proud to be in a school district that continuously strives for success. Everyone knows that high achieving students are a product of highly determined teachers. Which is why we are pleased to share that Conroe ISD has approved raises for teachers in the district, according to a recent article by Community Impact.

The CISD board of trustees unanimously approved a 3.5% raise for teachers, nurses, counselors and librarians for the 2019-2020 school year at its June 19 meeting. Although the board approved the recommendation, it will still need to finalize the raises when it approves the 2019-20 budget.

The raises, detailed in a presentation by Chief Financial Officer Darren Rice, are in response to House Bill 3, signed by Gov. Greg Abbott June 11. HB3 gives $11.6 billion to Texas school districts and specifies districts must use 30% of their increased funding to provide salary increases. The bill also specifies 75% of the salary increases must go to teachers, nurses, counselors and librarians.

Rice’s recommendation would see this group in CISD receive $8.1 million, as well as a $200 stipend for teachers with six or more years of experience. Administrators would receive 3% increases, and all other employees would receive 3.5%. The board increased the stipend to $500.

That means a teacher with 10 years of experience making the 2018-2019 hire salary of $56,570 would receive a total of $2,500 in a raise for the 2019-2020 school year. Rice said these raises are conservative and still flexible.
