May 17, 2022- The Boerne Independent School District Board of Trustees approved the 2022-23 employee compensation plan at Monday’s regular monthly meeting.
The approved compensation plan features increased pay grades aligned to market values for all positions in the district. Starting pay for a first-year teacher will increase to $52,250. Teachers, nurses, and librarians will receive a 3.5% increase as part of the annual step equating to $2,020 more per year. Paraprofessional and professional employees will receive 3.5% of their new pay grade midpoint. Auxiliary employees were granted emergency pay during the spring in the amount of $2.00 per hour. The pay differential will become permanent to their pay for 22-23, equating to a 6.5% to 12.0% of the midpoint increase for these employees. Guest Teachers will also maintain the emergency pay rates implemented in the spring.
In addition, TRS health insurance premiums have been significantly reduced for the 22-23 plan year. The district will continue contributing at the current rate based on the plan election. Savings directly to employees will range from $852 to $4,068 a year. The average insurance cost savings for BISD employees will be $1,548.
Together, the BISD salary increase and health insurance premium decrease will mean our employees will see an average of 6.2% total increase as take home for 2022-2023.
