2022-23 Proposed Salary and Pay

The Frisco ISD School Board will convene in June to review a proposed 2022-23 compensation plan that includes salary increases and incentives for all employees. 

  • 4% of salary raise for teachers (and all other employees on the teacher pay scale)

  • 3.25% of salary raise for all other employees 

If approved by the Board, the proposed raise will be calculated using the percentage of the employee’s actual salary rather than midpoint to provide an equitable increase to more tenured staff.

Additionally, the proposed compensation plan includes targeted pay increases and stipends for those in especially hard-to-fill positions. 

Proposed hourly rate increases range from $0.85 to $2.50 per hour for certain* hourly positions. Current employees will receive the greater of the hourly rate increase or the percentage of salary increase. 

  • Bus drivers: $2.50/hour increase, minimum wage $22.00/hour 

  • Bus monitors: $2.50/hour increase, minimum wage $14.50/hour

  • Custodians: $2.50/hour increase, minimum wage $14.50/hour

  • Child Nutrition cooks and cashiers: $2.50/hour increase, minimum wage $14.50/hour 

  • Classroom aides: $0.85/hour increase, minimum wage $14.50/hour

  • Special education aides: $0.85-$1.00/hour increase, minimum wage $15.40-$16.30/hour

*Please note this list is not comprehensive of positions proposed to receive an hourly wage increase.

FISD also proposes using federal stimulus dollars to fund a one-time $1,000 stipend for employees working in the most hard-to-staff positions. This stipend would be paid in installments over the course of the 2022-23 school year to:

  • Bus drivers

  • Child nutrition cooks and cashiers

  • Special education teachers and aides

The starting salary for new teachers with no prior experience is proposed to increase to $58,250, with corresponding increases for new hires based on their years of experience. Pay adjustments are also proposed for current employees to ensure their compensation after the 4% raise is equal to or exceeds that of new hires with similar years of experience. See the full 2022-23 teacher salary guide proposed for the 2022-23 school year below.  


A public hearing on the proposed budget will be held at the June 13 School Board meeting, with an official vote scheduled June 20.

Teacher Incentive Allotment

Since 2020, the District has been exploring ways to provide incentives for highly effective teachers through the Teacher Incentive Allotment as part of the District’s recruitment and retention efforts.
After a COVID-related delay, the District is taking a pivotal step by officially submitting an application for the District’s local designation system to the Texas Education Agency. 

The Teacher Incentive Allotment is part of House Bill 3, passed by the legislature in 2019, that provides a state stipend to teachers who achieve certain designations. There are numerous steps that districts must take before a teacher may receive a state stipend, including creating a local designation system that measures teacher observation and student growth.
