On Tuesday, July 9, 2019, the Ennis ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to approve a salary increase for all Ennis ISD employees. In accordance with the recently passed House Bill 3, a large portion of these raises will be for teachers, counselors, librarians, and RNs who will all receive, at minimum, an increase of $4,000 per year. Starting pay for EISD teachers will also increase from $46,000 to $50,000 annually. Significant increases have been approved for paraprofessionals and bus drivers, as well as for all bilingual teacher stipends. In addition, the board approved an increase in the district’s contribution towards monthly employee health care premiums, moving from $275 to $325 per employee, and will also provide a telemedicine service available to all employees which will be paid for by the district.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Board of Trustees for their investment in our entire staff and for their continued commitment to our employees and students.
