When Dublin ISD's 193 employees go back to school, some will have a little more cash coming their way.
The board of trustees awarded a 5 percent pay increase to all non-teaching employees and a $1,000 one-time raise to long-time teachers no longer eligible for annual raises.
"Our employees work hard year-round and the school board recognizes that," said Board President Daniel Thiebaud. "While working on the 2012-13 budget, it was important to us to reward these individuals. I'm glad we were able to make the budget work with a full 5 percent raise instead."
Teachers who have taught for at least 25 years and been with the district for at least five haven't enjoyed the annual raise given to teachers with less experience each year by the district. DISD's raise schedule for teachers in the employee compensation plan tops out with 25-year teachers.
Custodians, secretaries, maintenance workers, bus drivers and other non-teaching employees were given the across-the-board raise.
The raises will add up to $90,625 in payroll costs to the 2012-13 budget.
