Pearland ISD’s board of trustees will consider a new salary and compensation package at its May 14 meeting for the 2024-25 school year, which includes a salary increase for multiple staff positions throughout the district.

The overview

PISD administration said they believe now is a good time for salary increases due to the district's “current financial state and successful passing of both the November 2023 [voter-approval tax rate election] and May 2024 bond propositions,” according to district agenda documents.

Administration recommends increasing beginning teacher salaries from $60,500 to $62,700 as well as providing a 2% salary increase to all eligible employees, which totals a little less than $3 million in cost to PISD, according to district documents.

What else?

According to district documents, PISD administration is also recommending additional pay grade adjustments for the following positions throughout the district:
  • Auxiliary positions, focusing on food service employees
  • Instructional Support positions, focusing on Pearland’s Essential and Academic Readiness Skills, and Preschool Programs for Students with Disabilities employees
  • Teacher positions, focusing on teachers with 6-9 and 14-35 years of experience
  • Other positions, which are unspecified
The package also allows the district to consider an additional one-time payment for employees later in the year depending on how the district’s finances look, according to district documents.
