The Clear Creek Independent School District has announced a significant compensation package for its nearly 5,000 employees.

The compensation package includes a 4% to 9.49% pay raise for classroom teachers, counselors, librarians and nurses, new competitive hourly rate for school bus drivers, an increase in the district’s contribution to employee health care premiums and an across the board 3.5% increase for all other employees. 

“The success of our school district is contingent on recruiting and retaining a high quality staff,” said Dr. Greg Smith, Superintendent of Schools. “This board-approved compensation package reflects our commitment to our employees and ensures Clear Creek ISD is a destination for those who have a heart for children.” 

On Monday, July 22, 2019, the Clear Creek ISD School Board unanimously approved $11.3 million in direct salary increases for existing employees as well as $370,000 to offset the rising cost of healthcare premiums for those employees on TRSActive Care. As part of the overall compensation package, the district will also increase the starting salary for teachers from $53,600 to $55,750.
