JUDSON ISD The board of trustees on May 19 approved an employee incentive plan that increases wages. According to Superintendent Jeanette Ball, the raise will aect all employees with a one-time incentive or increase. “What we are proposing tonight is probably one of the biggest raises that Judson has done and probably one of the biggest in Bexar County at this point,” Ball said. According to Ball, the salary for teachers would be increased by 6% on the midpoint with a $1,000 incentive. For professionals, which includes assistant principals, accountants, dietitians and other specialists, the raise would be 4% with a $1,000 incentive. Auxiliary, clerical, police and bus drivers each will receive an increase of 6% and a $2,000 incentive. The board of trustees was in full support of the raise, with many board members expressing their gratitude. “A 6% raise, when we rst started this budget process, never did I think we could do it,” Ball said. “Then a 4% [raise] for professionals and 6% for auxiliary, clerical, police and bus drivers I think is something to be proud of.”
