The Frisco ISD School Board approved a resolution to pay a retention incentive for all eligible employees this coming January 2023. Staff who have been with the District for more than one year are eligible to receive a bonus in their January paycheck.
The Board of Trustees first approved this measure in January 2019 to thank employees for their dedication to the District and community. District staff look forward to the annual incentive to kick off the new year.
Eligible employees will receive an incentive equal to $50 for each year of service to FISD plus the greater of 1% of their base salary or $250. To be eligible, a staff member must have at least one year of Teacher Retirement System (TRS) service credit
with Frisco ISD as of Sept. 1, 2022, and still be employed with FISD as of Dec. 22, 2022. Eligible employees must remain employed without submittal of a resignation on the payment date.
“Frisco ISD is a destination district thanks to the incredible staff who have dedicated themselves to the District over time,” said Superintendent Dr. Mike Waldrip. “From crossing guards and cafeteria cashiers to teachers and paraprofessionals,
we are thrilled to reward those who stay with FISD.”
The District first set aside funds for the retention incentive in 2018 using revenue from the higher operations tax rate approved by voters in November 2018. The measure must be approved annually by the Board.
Flashback: Frisco ISD also provides a classroom teacher supply stipend of $250 each September to help promote recruitment and retention and cover out-of-pocket expenses.
