The Board of Trustees in Georgetown ISD adopted the budget for the 2021-22 school year during a special board meeting today.
The full budget adoption follows the approval of the compensation plan during last month’s board meeting and nearly six months of budget workshops to review the district’s record projected enrollment, student academic learning needs and newly passed legislation.
The full budget adoption comes after approval of the compensation plan during last month’s board meeting and accounts for local, state and federal revenue of $139,658,878 or nearly $120,268,000 net of recapture to the state. Of that, 90% is allocated for staffing and benefits.
The adopted compensation plan includes:
A raise in starting teacher salaries to $50,300
A raises for all other teachers, counselors, librarians and nurses of $1,100
A raise for all other staff equal to 2% of midpoint of their salary scale
This reflects the board’s commitment to adopt a budget that:
Continues progress in aligning salaries that are market competitive.
Preserves the programs that are good for kids and support our commitment to literacy, numeracy and learner profile growth for every student.
Secures the future of our district and the people we serve for the long term through the adoption of a sustainable budget.
