In accordance with House Bill 3, "classroom teachers"* with more than five (5) years of experience will be eligible for the following additional differentiated base pay increase:
- 6-15 years of creditable experience = $600 annually

*Per Texas Education Code Section 5.001 (2), a classroom teacher is defined as an "educator who is employed by a school district and who, not less than an average of four hours each day, teaches in an academic instructional setting or a career and technology instructional setting".
The teacher salary ranges are adopted annually by the Board of Trustees. These ranges should not be used to project salary amounts for subsequent years.
