Pecos Independent School District Stays Competitive 9/3/13
CBS 7 News
Pecos Independent School District decided on Thursday at the Pecos ISD board meeting that teachers will be getting a $3,000 raise across the board, effective immediately. This will continue for the 2013/2014 school year and teachers will start with the same salary next school year that they ended with at the end of this school year.
It was also decided that all auxiliary and staff in the Pecos ISD will be getting a pay raise for this year, begging this September. Superintendent Clarke Boyd says the raise will make each position competitive with similar positions in the region. They found these numbers by researching and looking at other salaries in the basin.
Another outcome of the Thursday meeting is a matching saving program. For the first time, employees have the option to put 3% of their paycheck into a savings plan and the district will match that amount of money. The employee must stay at the school for at least 3 years in order to keep the matching money the district contributes.
