TRUSTEES APPROVE COMPENSATION PACKAGE


Every employee in Galena Park ISD will receive a pay increase for the 2006-2007 school year thanks to the compensation package approved by the Board of Trustees during the July 17 regular Board meeting.

The compensation package for 2006-2007 will provide teachers, counselors, librarians and nurses with an average pay increase of 6.1 percent. Administrators will receive a 4 percent increase under the recently approved package while all other employees will receive a 5 percent increase.

“During these difficult financial times, our Board has provided a generous pay increase for all of the dedicated GPISD employees,” said Dr. Mark Henry, superintendent of schools. “I sincerely hope that all of our employees are enjoying the summer and will take the time to thank the Trustees for their continued support upon their return to duty.”
