Canutillo ISD employees will receive pay raises next school year. The Board of Trustees approved a five percent increase for teachers, nurses and librarians, while all other employees will receive a four percent raise.

"These raises are part of Canutillo ISD's commitment to reward our educators who do so much every day to support the academic success of our students," said Superintendent Dr. Pedro Galaviz. "Our teachers and staff are true professionals and well-deserving of these pay increases."

The District has been in a sound financial position to continually increase compensation at least 2 percent in each of the last three years.

"We are very pleased to be able to provide these salary increases for our teachers and staff," said Board President Sergio Coronado. "The Board values the contribution of all employees and recognizes the need to attract and retain the best teachers and employees."

Part of the funding for the pay raises is the result of House Bill 3, which included requirements for increased compensation for staff. In the budget approved in June, trustees allocated more than $1.3 million for salary increases, beyond what was mandated by the state.
