McKinney, Texas – The McKinney ISD Board of Trustees approved a new employee compensation plan for the 2017-2018 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 and marks the fourth consecutive year that the board has approved a raise of 3 percent or greater. The plan calls for a $1,750 flat raise for teachers, and the new teacher starting salary has been raised to $52,350 from the previous $50,900. The district will also continue the $500 mid-year employee stipend.

McKinney ISD Superintendent Dr. Rick McDaniel said that the new compensation plan will help keep MISD competitive with neighboring districts in acquiring and retaining the most talented teachers and staff.

“I am thankful that we have a board of trustees that values and appreciates our current teaching staff,” said McDaniel, “and one that also understands the importance of attracting potential employees to our district. This raise allows us to maintain a high level of teaching expertise in our district and also enables us to recruit the best of the best teachers in all of North Texas. We’re thankful that our board has supported this raise.”
