Board of Trustees approves retention stipend, salary increases for hard-to-fill positions

The Spring Branch ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously (7-0) during its Jan. 24 monthly meeting to approve a retention stipend for current SBISD employees and to adjust the compensation plan for the 2021-22 school year for certain hard-to-fill positions.

The employee retention stipend includes $2,000 for full-time employees and $1,000 for part-time employees, to be paid out in installments over a two-year period.

The adjusted compensation plan, which includes increases in salaries for substitutes, auxiliary groups, and teacher assistants, is effective on a go-forward basis and beginning with the Feb. 16, 2022, payroll.

Specific positions addressed include:

  • Summer School Positions
  • Tutors
  • Substitutes
  • Production Assistants
  • CNS Assistant Managers
  • Custodians
  • Police Officers, Police Dispatchers, Police Sergeants
  • Bus Drivers
  • Bus Assistants
  • Athletic Grounds Workers
  • Teacher Assistants

When taken together, the retention stipend and adjustments to the compensation plan represent an investment in SBISD employees of $9.4 million, funded through ESSER and other federal funds.
These investments are separate and apart from adjustments that may be made to the district’s compensation plan for the 2022-23 school year.
“Thank you to our Trustees for their vote to recognize the hard work of our employees in what continues to be a difficult school year,” said Superintendent Jennifer Blaine. “I am so grateful to every member of our team for the incredible work they continue to do each and every day on behalf of Every Child in SBISD.”
