An extra $1,000 in pay is on the way for Burton ISD teachers and staff.
After an executive session on Monday, the Burton School Board approved the 2023-24 staff payment plan.
Superintendent Dr. Edna Kennedy said the teacher pay scale is being adjusted to provide a $1,000 raise to all teachers. All other district employees will get a $1,000 raise, as well.
The district also plans to give all employees a $1,000 bonus in December.
Dr. Kennedy said a lot of work and thought went into creating a staff payment plan, especially as the state decides what it wants to do to support school employees. She thanked Burton ISD Business Manager Caitlyn Blakey-Staal for her work and diligence in preparing and re-preparing payment plan options that the district’s budget could support.
