McKinney, Texas – The McKinney ISD Board of Trustees approved the employee compensation plan for the 2021–2022 school year at their regular May meeting on Tuesday, May 18. The compensation plan keeps McKinney ISD among the highest paying school districts in the area.

—Non-exempt and exempt employees, which includes paraprofessional staff, other hourly support positions and salaried campus and administrative support staff, will receive a 2 percent of mid-point pay increase.

—Teachers, Nurses, Counselors, Librarians, Diagnosticians, etc. will receive a $1,250 pay increase. In addition, MISD will raise the starting teacher compensation to $58,300, which includes the $500 mid-year stipend.

—All eligible employees will continue to receive the $500 mid-year stipend.

“We are pleased to be in a financial position to remain at or near the top of pay for surrounding districts,” said MISD Superintendent Dr. Rick McDaniel. “I consider the MISD faculty and staff to be our greatest assets, and they did an extraordinary job this year under challenging circumstances. It is always our intent to seek a pay increase, to the greatest extent possible, given the financial parameters in which we have to operate. As a result, MISD continues to attract some of the best and brightest educators in the nation.”

MISD has been named a Dallas Business Journal Best Place to Work four times and in 2018 was named the #1 Best Place to Work in the Extra-Large Business category. MISD has also been recognized on the Dallas Morning News Top 100 Places to work list.
