PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (KXAN) — On Thursday, the Pflugerville ISD Board of Trustees approved salary increases for the upcoming school year.

The salary increases included a 2% raise of the pay range midpoint for all employees, as well as setting the minimum hourly wage to $17. The starting salary for teachers was also increased to $57,700.

The district said it would continue to evaluate programs and processes to identify any cost savings for the district in order to provide employee raises.

According to PfISD, the salaries for the district’s roughly 3,000 employees make up 86% of its annual district budget.

“Despite the challenges posed by the skyrocketing cost of living and an anticipated $7 million budget deficit, PfISD is committed to prioritizing its staff members by striving to provide them with the maximum possible increase,” the district said.

PfISD said the challenges were due to inaction by Texas Legislatures following four additional special sessions in 2023.

“Without changes to public education finance and combined with rising costs, PfISD and districts across Texas will continue to look for ways to do more with less,” the district said.
