It is the goal of Northside Compensation Department to strive for and maintain a total compensation package that will attract, retain and reward a superior workforce to successfully achieve the mission of the District—meeting the needs of students while serving as good stewards of the Northside taxpayers.

Pay Schedules

Careers at NISD are scheduled in three groups (see the jobs page for a description of which jobs fit into which group):

Step Pay Schedule

This pay scale is based on years of experience and college degree level, which are tied to the Texas Teacher Pay Scale, as approved by the State Legislature.  

Midpoint Schedules

“Midpoint” schedules include a series of pay grades with an established minimum, midpoint and maximum salary that are tied to market conditions and other job related factors.  No state statutory requirement for entry compensation is required.

Alternative Pay Schedules

These pay scales cover various substitute, temporary, non-regular and seasonal jobs that are not part of the other pay systems.
