Attract & Retain Staff - One Reason For Calling TRE

Our shared commitment to attract and retain high-quality teachers is just one reason we called for a TRE to swap two pennies, lower the tax rate and generate $3 million of additional operating funds that will stay local.

If voters approve the Penny Swap & Drop (by voting "FOR" the proposition), the District would be able to access additional funds to be used for educational programs, including salary increases. Learn more about the District's continued efforts to attract and retain teachers below.

Salaries & Benefits Discussion

At the September meeting, the Board heard an update on the comparison of area school districts' salaries and benefits. Out of the 12 area districts, the percentage of increases ranges from 1.5% to 4%. At this time, the Board has not made a decision on salaries and benefits for 2017-18 but has instead decided to wait until later in the fall following the November 7 TRE to make its decision. If the Board does not vote for an increase, Eanes ISD will rank in the mid to bottom quartiles of salary schedules. If voters approve the tax rate proposed in the TRE (by voting "FOR" the proposition), the District would be able to access additional funds to be used for educational programs, including salary increases.
