Katy ISD enrollment continues to increase, year over year. As enrollment increases, so do starting teacher salaries and the district’s total number of teachers. Enrollment is projected to grow 13.85% between 2019 and 2023.
Lamar CISD average teacher salaries continue to outpace Katy ISD’s average year over year. Enrollment increases in the district mirror the rising salaries with a 25.3% increase between 2018-19 and 2022-23. Still, LCISD’s enrollment is projected to be less than half of KISD’s in the 2022-23 school year.
