VATRE Salary Increase FAQ's
 
 
1. How will Godley ISD maintain the VATRE Salary increases?
  • With the passing of the VATRE, Godley ISD will continue to receive the additional funds annually, and will continue to pay teachers and staff according to the new Salary Schedules.
 
2.  How will the VATRE funds change going forward?
  • As Godley ISD continues to grow in the coming years, we will keep getting the additional funds provided by the passing of the VATRE.  These funds will grow in proportion to the growth of our student enrollment.
 

3. How will Godley ISD afford new staff?

  • As Godley ISD continues to grow, we receive more funds in proportion to our student growth.  The student growth fuels and provides additional funds to attract and retain the additional life-changing teachers and staff for our kids.
 
4. Why did teachers with less experience get a larger percent increase than teachers with more years of experience?
  • Teachers with fewer years experience, were much farther below the average than teachers with more experience based on the 2020-2021 UEA teacher scale for the DFW Metroplex. For example: a Godley ISD teacher with 0 years experience was 15.7% below the average, while a teacher with 20 years experience was 7.7% below average. Raises were not based on a target percentage, but were targeted to exceed the 2020-2021 UEA average scale shown below.
