Lubbock ISD Raises Teacher Signing Bonus

The Lubbock Independent School district has some good news for science or math teachers looking for a job.

"It's been $1,500 for a little over ten years," said Rafael Madrid, Assistand Superintendent for Personnel. "And with the approval today it will go to $5,000."

Thursday morning, the Lubbock School Board approved the increase of the sign-on bonus for what they call "dire need" teachers. The board hopes the increase will attract teachers from neighboring districts, and recent college graduates.
