Pay Raise Ahead for LISD Professionals

Despite budget cuts, Lubbock ISD teachers will be getting raises.

Thursday, board trustees approved a 3.5% pay increase for teachers and para-professionals. Administrators will get a 3% pay raise.

The raises will cost the district $4.1 million, but superintendent Wayne Havens says salary increases are a way of showing the district's priorities.

"Our board has always felt and has always directed our resources to the classrooms and the classrooms means our teachers," said Havens.

Havens adds that recent retirements and other re-budgeting have helped to make the raises possible.
