FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - The Fort Worth ISD board is expected to finalize pay raises for teachers and staffers at tonight's meeting.

When it passed its budget for the upcoming academic year back in June, it did not know how much revenue it was going to get from the Texas Education Agency to implement HB3.

Now, it knows that it's getting $57.7 million.

The original budget called for a two-percent raise across the board; Clint Bond with Fort Worth ISD says those pay raises will go up.

It also calls for a starting salary of $54,000 for all first-year teachers.
