The HISD Board of Education last week approved a $1.74 billion budget that includes nearly $30 million that will go directly to teacher salaries. As a result, HISD is adopting a new salary schedule that will benefit all teachers. Under the new schedule, every current teacher, and those teachers hired by July 1, 2014, will see a minimum gain of $1,100.
Although the new salary schedule moves away from additional compensation for advanced degrees, current teachers with master’s and doctorate degrees will maintain their current salary, along with a $1,100 increase. The same is true for any new employee with an advanced degree who joins Team HISD by July 1, 2014. In addition, HISD will honor the master’s and doctoral degree salaries for current teachers, or new teachers hired by July 1, who are pursuing advanced degrees and who will earn that degree by August 2014.
Current teachers can determine their salary for the 2014-2015 school year by taking their years of teaching experience and applying them to the 2014-2015 Teacher Salary Schedule listed here.
Current teachers with an advanced degree and who want to determine their salary for 2014-2015, can refer to this document.
HISD’s Compensation Department is eager to help anyone who has questions and concerns about the new structure and how it will directly affect their pay. For more, write email@example.com.
