The Lewisville ISD board of trustees unanimously approved districtwide raises for the 2019-20 school year, which included increases in teacher compensation—as required by House Bill 3—at a July 15 meeting.

The board adopted a plan that will give teachers with less than five years of experience a 2.5% raise; those with six to 15 years of experience a 2.75% increase; and teachers with 16 or more years a 3.5% increase. Instructional aides with less than five years of experience in the district will receive a 3% raise, and those with six or more years will receive a 3.5% raise. Trustees approved a 2.5% and 2% raise for all other district employees and administrators, respectively. Entry-level teachers will receive an annual salary of $54,500.

The plan, which was proposed by trustee Allison Lassahn, passed unanimously. Trustee Kristi Hassett was not at the meeting.

Trustee Tracy Scott Miller said he wanted the board to act as good stewards of the district's resources.

"Our intent is to give [more experienced] teachers greater compensation," Miller said.
