Once again, teachers and other paraprofessionals in the Alice Independent School District will receive a pay raise.
On Tuesday, May 10, Alice ISD’s Board of Directors unanimously approved the 2022-2023 salary grid for teachers and other professionals.
Beginning teachers will now start at $53,000 and teachers over 30 at $65,000. This puts Alice ISD at the top of the Region 2 districts for entry-level teacher salary, according to the school district.
Just a few years ago, Alice ISD was among the lowest in the region, with entry-level teachers starting at $38,000 and ending at $49,900.
The board also approved the alternate professional pay scale for counsellors, social workers, diagnosticians and other professional positions.
“Thank you to our finance department and the school board for their focused action in increasing our scales from start to finish,” said Alice ISD Superintendent Dr. Carl Scarbrough. “We know we can be even more competitive with our compensation plans, and we will remain committed to doing so for our teachers and our children.”
We will present the rest of the compensation plan salary ranges to the board in June for review and action, he said.
All salary increases will take effect for the 2022-2023 school year.
Teachers and staff on the pay scale will receive a significant raise, in addition, all staff will receive a retention allowance of $1,000 for all returning employees.
