MISD board of trustees approved a new compensation plan during a meeting June 25 raising the salaries of teachers, nurses, librarians, diagnosticians and counselors by a fixed payment of $2,100. These employees are also eligible for an additional pay increase between $100-$900.
Eligible employees who are exempt, meaning the employee does not have to punch a time clock, will receive a 3% raise based on the mid-point of their salary range. Eligible non-exempt employees will receive a 5% raise based on the mid-point of their salary range, according to district documents.
The compensation plan also raises the starting teacher pay by $500 to $56,150 annually, according to district documents.
All employees will also receive a $500 mid-year stipend, according to a presentation during the meeting.
