LEANDER, Texas — Teachers and staff at the Leander Independent School District can expect to see a pay increase soon after the board's meeting Thursday night.
The numbers aren't finalized yet, but its starting teacher salary is now $50,000 a year and leaders will adjust salary scales from there, the district said.
Teachers, counselors and librarians with more than 5 years of experience there can expect a pay bump of about 7%, according to the district. Teachers, counselors and librarians with one to five years of experience can expect an average of a 5% increase.
This comes after Gov. Greg Abbott signed House Bill 3. The bill injects more than $11.5 billion into the public school system and completely revamps the formulas used to decide how much money schools get per student.
