June 22, 2015- The School Board approved a general pay increase of 2.5 percent for all AISD employees for the 2015-2016 school year.  The 2.5 percent is applied to the midpoint of each pay grade, meaning individual employees may see a slightly bigger or slightly smaller increase, depending on where they fall within their pay grade.  The total impact of the raise on the district’s budget will be $5,109,270, which includes $3,842,125 for raises for teachers, counselors, nurses, librarians, and diagnosticians; $763,997 for raises for clerical/technical and manual trades; and $503,148 for raises for administration, including principals, assistant principals, and central office administrators.

Trustees also approved the teacher hiring schedule for 2015-2016, with a new teacher starting salary of $45,518, up from $44,626 last year.

The Board approved a total operating budget of $245,917,957 for 2015-2016 (compared to last year’s operating budget of $239,601,557).

In other business, trustees awarded contracts for roofing projects for several portable buildings, storage buildings, and Dick Bivins Stadium.  These roofing repairs are necessary because of the 2013 hail storm, and costs are covered by insurance proceeds.  The Board also purchased some property across the street from Carver Elementary Academy.

Finally, trustees elected John Ben Blanchard as president of the Board and Renee McCown as vice president, and they set the following dates for regular Board meetings through the remainder of 2015:  Thursday, July 23; Monday, August 17; Monday, September 14; Monday, October 19; Monday, November 16; and Monday, December 14.
