Dallas ISD is proposing to raise the minimum district hourly wage from $12.12 to $13.50 per hour.

Employees in the impacted positions would receive an average increase of 10%, with some employees receiving slightly less or more depending on individual specifics. The increase would impact about 7,300 employees, primarily in the Maintenance and Operations, Student Transportation, Food and Child Nutrition Services, Paraprofessional, Office Support and Police and Security pay structures.

The district will continue to evaluate potential further increases to the Dallas ISD minimum wage in the future.

If approved as part of the proposed 2021–2022 budget, impacted employees would see the increase reflected starting in their September 2021 paycheck effective their 2021-2022 calendar start date.

The minimum wage increase is also included in the proposed District Improvement Plan that trustees discussed during the June 10 briefing.
