The Del Valle ISD Board of Trustees recently approved an average 7% salary increase for all teachers, librarians, nurses, and paraprofessionals.
The raises approved, including one-time stipends, move the district’s starting teacher salary to $55,000 per year. The minimum hourly rate for paraprofessionals is $15.25 per hour and the minimum hourly rate for bus drivers is $21.15 per hour.
The average seven-percent salary increase for non-administrator staff includes a one-time retention stipend of $1000. Campus and district administrators will receive a four-percent salary increase.
The salary increases are part of a balanced budget proposal presented to the Board by the Superintendent and Administration, says the district.

The district is also hosting a job fair for all positions on Wednesday, June 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Del Valle Opportunity Center. Job postings and pre-registration for the job fair are available online.
