VISD proposes employee pay raise

VICTORIA, Texas – The Victoria Independent School District held a budget workshop at its board meeting July 25th. Board Members discussed plans to cut taxes by eighteen cents to $0.97, and plans to replace many school buses. The biggest topic of discussion, however, was an employee pay raise.

“One piece of the budget workshop was a proposal to the board to approve pay increases for all employees. For teachers, it would be an average of 6%, and for other employees around 5%” said Shawna Currie, the Director of Communications for the VISD.

Victoria ISD hopes to adopt this pay raise at their next board meeting August 1st, 2019, so that the changes will go into effect by the time that employees get their first paycheck of the school year.
