The Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees approved a salary increase for all LISD employees that equates to an average increase of 2.8 percent. The starting teacher salary will increase from the current salary of $40,000 to a new starting salary of $41,000 for the 2013-14 school year. The board was also briefed on the 2013-14 budget, which will be adopted at the June 27 meeting. State revenue to the district is expected to increase after the state legislature restored much of the funding which had been eliminated during the previous session.

Interim Superintendent Berhl Robertson, Jr., Ed.D. said, "I am very pleased that we are in a position to provide this increase to our teachers and employees. Our new starting salary of $41,000 will help us attract the best teachers coming out of our local universities, and we know having a quality teacher in the classroom is integral to student success." "We are very appreciative to our legislative delegation for helping restore some of the cuts to public education from the previous session. With the steps we have taken to improve the efficiency with which we operate and the help of our state legislature to increase funding, we are positioned much better financially to meet the needs of our students," he added.

Trustees also approved the hiring of David Beal as an assistant athletic director. Beal will take over for Assistant AD David Harrison, who retires at the end of the month. Beal is currently the football offensive coordinator for Bryan High School. He has previous athletic coordinator experience in Temple and Spring ISD's and was the athletic director in Brenham. Beal was an assistant offensive coach at Northern Illinois University, a graduate assistant coach at Texas A& M and assisted with quarterback coaching at Texas Tech.
