LISD teacher, employee salary budget approved

Provided by: Lubbock ISD

At the Board of Trustees meeting on Wednesday, two new principals were named and the employee salary schedule was approved for the 2014-15 school year.

New teachers in Lubbock ISD will have a starting salary of $42,000, and all employees will receive a pay increase averaging 2.5 percent. The new starting salary will put LISD beginning teachers more closely aligned to similarly sized districts and well above other Lubbock County school districts.

In other action, trustees named David Johnson as principal for Project Intercept and Davida Burks as the new principal at Centennial Elementary. Johnson is currently the associate principal at Monterey High School.

Superintendent Berhl Robertson, Jr., said, "As the associate principal at Monterey, David has demonstrated his effectiveness in working with all types of students, from the highly motivated to the at-risk student. It will be a loss for Monterey, but I am thrilled to have someone of David's caliber leading the staff at Project Intercept."

Burks will return to Centennial Elementary as principal, where she was a second-grade teacher when the school opened in 2007-08. Currently the assistant principal at Ervin Elementary, she has also served as an assistant principal at Estacado High School.

Superintendent Berhl Robertson, Jr., said, "What is really unique about Davida is her high school experience. She understands the end game of where we need to take student achievement. It is so meaningful for an elementary principal to have that perspective."

"She'll carry on the Centennial traditions and take the campus to the next level," he added.
