Board Approves Raises, Teacher Pay Among Highest in the Area

McKinney, Texas – The McKinney ISD Board of Trustees approved a new employee compensation plan for the 2018-2019 school year with a unanimous vote at the monthly board meeting Tuesday night.

The new compensation plan calls for a 3 percent raise to the midpoint of pay range for employee salaries, along with a $500 mid-year stipend, and marks the fifth consecutive year that the board has approved a raise of 3 percent or greater.

The plan calls for a $1,800 flat raise for pay grades 1 and 2 (all teachers, counselors, nurses, librarians, diagnosticians, etc.), and the new teacher starting salary has been raised to $54,350, which includes a $500 mid-year stipend.

The new starting teacher salary places McKinney ISD among the highest paying school districts in the area. Under the new plan non-exempt staff, which includes paraprofessional staff and other hourly support positions, will see a 6 percent increase in pay.

“I am very thankful to work for a district that values the contributions of all its team members and the role that each person, directly or indirectly, plays in regard to student learning,” said MISD Assistant Superintendent and Chief Human Resources Officer Tamira Griffin. “It’s easy to see how MISD has earned a Best Place to Work in DFW award the last two years.”

McKinney ISD Superintendent Dr. Rick McDaniel said that the new compensation plan will help keep MISD competitive with neighboring districts in acquiring and retaining not only the most talented teachers, but also support staff who are critical to the overall success of students and the district.

“We have a board of trustees that values and appreciates our staff,” said McDaniel. “They also understand the importance of attracting potential employees to our district. This raise allows us to maintain a high level of teaching expertise while also making it possible for us to recruit the best teachers and support staff in all of North Texas. We are thankful that our board has supported this raise.”
