Not long after College Station teachers got a raise, Bryan's school board has put more money in the pockets of their educators.
Just as they have in most recent years, trustees approved a hike in pay. Teachers, counselors, nurses and diagnosticians will get between a three to four percent raise depending on their experience.
Trustees will decide on raises for the remaining BISD staff next week, and said this raise was as manageable a hike as they could possibly give with the district budget being tight.
In all, these raises will cost nearly $1.7 million.
Starting salary for teachers in Bryan will be just over $36,000. With their new, recent raise, College Station teachers starting out will make $37,000.
