On Monday, Canutillo ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved a two percent general pay increase for all CISD employees for the 2020-21 school year.
“I consider our faculty and staff our greatest assets,” said Superintendent Dr. Pedro Galaviz. “We truly appreciate the work they do in educating and supporting our students.”
Over the past four years, the District has been in a sound financial position to continually increase compensation.
“We are pleased to be able to provide these salary increases to our teachers and staff during such a challenging time,” said Board President Sergio Coronado. “They have worked so hard for our children and the present situation has demanded even more of their time and effort.”
The compensation plan, approved on May 26 at the regular board meeting, keeps Canutillo ISD among the highest-paying school districts in the region.
Starting teacher pay would increase from $52,500 to $53,150 a year and all other teachers’ pay will climb through pay-scale step increases.
