Manor ISD Approves 2019-20 Budget and District-Wide Pay Raises

Manor Independent School District Board of Trustees have approved a $90.9 million budget for 2019-20. The budget includes pay raises for all district employees.

The approved plan includes an innovative, new experience-based adjustment for teachers, counselors, nurses, and librarians that will range between 4 to 7 percent depending upon their placement and step on the Teacher, Counselor, Nurse and Librarian Salary Scale.

Other plan highlights include:

• A new hourly base rate of $20 an hour for bus drivers
• Up to a $5,000 stipend for bilingual classroom teachers
• Adjustment of new-to-the-profession teachers to $48,780
• Employees on traditional pay scales-such as paraprofessionals and administrators-will receive a 4 percent adjustment (based on the midpoint of their respective salary scales within the new compensation plan)
• Equity adjustments for certain positions that were identified as being significantly below market value
• Approved standard step adjustments for all personnel on step-pay scales

“Manor ISD is thankful to have a Board that is heavily invested in supporting our teachers and staff to best meet the needs of our growing student population while being exemplary stewards of taxpayer dollars,” said MISD Superintendent Dr. Royce Avery. “We are proud to have a generous compensation plan that will assist us in our vision of making Manor a destination district.”

Employees can view the district’s compensation plan on the Manor ISD website.

House Bill 3, also known as the Texas Plan for School Finance Form, earmarked $4.5 billion to education reforms, $2 billion for teacher compensation, and $5 billion in property tax relief.

Manor ISD expects to begin the 2019-20 school year with approximately 9,500 students and more than 1,000 employees.
