ECTOR COUNTY, Texas (Nexstar)- ECISD trustees unanimously approved pay raises Tuesday for employees in both salary and hourly positions. 

Additionally, the board voted to increase the starting teacher salary to $57,000. Four years ago, an ECISD starting teacher’s salary was $44,5000. 

Every employee on a teacher pay scale will get a raise of $1,800 with room for adjustment going forward. 

Hourly employees will get a 4% pay raise, and the minimum hourly pay was increased to $12.00. 

The board also approved a $750 stipend for all those employed by the district on the first day of instruction in August. 

The pay increase comes at a cost of about $7.4 million to the district’s budget.
