VATRE 2023


  • The legislature has not added any meaningful new money to schools despite rising costs due to inflation.  Without additional funding, it would be even more challenging to provide competitive compensation for CHISD teachers and staff. Previously, CHISD utilized federal grant funds to provide stipends and raises to maintain relatively competitive compensation for teachers and other hard-to-fill positions. teachers



    With the passage of the  VATRE, CHISD will have the funds to sustain previous salary increases from 2022-2023 as a result of inflation:

    • 3% raise for all teachers (2023-24 budget)

    • 1% raise for all CHISD staff (2023-24 budget)

    • 5% raise for all CHISD staff (2022-23 budget, previously supplemented from now-exhausted ESSER grant funds)
