Board of Trustees approves 2% pay increase for all HPISD employees
The HPISD Board of Trustees approved an overall average pay increase of 2 percent for all employees today during a called meeting. The increase will take effect for the 2014-15 school year.

"The Board recognizes how hard our faculty and staff work, and we are pleased to approve a pay increase for them," HPISD Board of Trustees President Leslie Melson said. "The pay increase will allow the district to maintain a competitive salary for its faculty and staff, and it will help attract and retain talented employees who are committed to educational excellence."
This is the third consecutive year the Board has approved an overall pay increase. 
HPISD Assistant Superintendent for Business Services Tim Turner expressed his gratitude to district leaders and to the community for their support.
"HPISD is appreciative of our supportive community," Turner said. "Contributions from private donors make up 10 percent of our annual budget. Their generosity not only makes this raise possible, but also helps fund the excellent educational program for our students."
