SAN ANTONIO - For the first time in Northside Independent School District’s history, the starting pay for beginning teachers will break the $50,000 mark.

The board approved a $21.4 million compensation package that provided pay increases for 14,000 employees. The pay increases are significant because Northside is the largest school district in Bexar County.

School board members also approved an increase of 173 more positions to accommodate a 2,000-student increase in enrollment for the 2015–2016 academic year. Northside will also open one more school.

The growth in schools also speaks to the level of new development the city is experiencing in North and Northwest San Antonio. These two regions of the city have experienced a major influx of new subdivisions and apartments, which have brought more students to the school district.
