College Station teachers may be on summer break, but they might be heading back to school a bit happier.
Tuesday night, the school board will vote on a possible raise of four percent across the board for teachers and school staff, though that could be higher for many due to scheduled steps.
Over the past few months, a number of teachers have been lobbying the school board for a raise, saying they are paid less than teachers in like-sized districts.
Currently, CSISD has about a $30 million surplus to work with, though around half of that has been earmarked for future schools in the district.
The board meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. with the workshop session. The regular session starts at 7:00 p.m.
Brenham teachers are already excited, this after that district's trustees approved a three percent raise for educators there. Superintendent David Yeager says that raise will come without a tax increase to district residents.
Brenham High School also has a new principal. Associate principal Steve Skrla was promoted.
