MISSION – Sharyland ISD School Board members approved several pay increases during this week’s board meeting. The increases will cost the district just over $1.8 million.
Ann Patton, senior compensation consultant with Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), presented salary comparison information to the district this week and made several recommendations. Patton said the district had done very well and there weren’t a lot of areas that needed improvement.
The board voted to go with the recommendations made by TASB, a three percent general raise to all employees and teachers will receive a $1,500 pay increase. Employees receiving less than midpoint, compared to others in the same field, and having above average experience could receive an additional 1.5 to three percent raises to make their salaries more competitive.
