SSISD To Consider Teacher Pay Scale At Special Meeting
Sulphur Springs Independent School District Board of Trustees have called another special meeting for Monday, July 1, marking the second special meeting in a week.
The first part of the meeting is scheduled to be very similar to that held at noon Wednesday, June 26; trustees are slated to enter into executive session upon calling the meeting to order in order to discuss personnel matters.
Trustees have held five extra meetings since April in an effort to try to fill as many teacher and staff openings as possible before the new school year starts.
After the closed session Monday morning, trustees are scheduled to reconvene in open session to take action on any items pushed forward for action from the closed meeting.
Then, trustees are slated to discuss and consider approving a recommended new teacher pay scale, which Superintendent Michael Lamb is expected to present at that time.
Many school districts are having to adjust their pay scales in order to meet new legislative changes for teacher pay increases. At the regular June board meeting, administrators and business officials reported the district was still working to figure out the new requirements, as well as how they will impact the district budget.
The July 1 meeting will begin at 8 a.m. in the board room of the SSISD Administration Building, located at 631 Connally St.
