Teachers across Texas have a $2,000 raise to look forward to this school year. But, it may mean even more for staff at LISD. "Teachers will realize that $2,000 plus a step, and it's a step on our salary schedule," said LISD Superintendent Wayne Havens.
Steps are based on the level of experience and education each teacher has.
Overall, the board of trustees approved just under $9 million in raises. Much of it will come from the increase approved by state lawmakers in May, the first increase of its kind since 1999.
