KILLEEN, Texas – Killeen Independent School District Board members have approved Superintendent Dr. John Craft’s proposed compensation plan awarding teachers a six-to-ten percent raise.
The approved beginning teacher salary is $50,300 for the upcoming school year. These increases exceed the House Bill 3 requirements for compensation signed into law earlier this year by Governor Greg Abbott.
This pay increase was the center of discussion at a special school board meeting on Tuesday night.
District Superintendent Dr. John Craft unveiled the proposed plan last week, proposing a six-to-ten percent pay raise for teachers within the district.
