Mustang Public Schools Support and Administrative Staff To Receive Raise Under New Salary Schedule
(Mustang, Oklahoma – June 6, 2019) – It was just last week that Mustang Public Schools (MPS) announced a raise to the certified teacher base pay of $3708.28 for next school year, and now, pending Board approval, the District is excited to recognize their support and administrative staff with a much deserved raise as well.
Education support professionals are central to the success of every school and child. As such, MPS support employees (such as Custodians, Administrative Professionals, Bus Drivers, Teaching Assistants, Mechanics, etc.) will see an increase of $.80 per hour for the 2019-20 school year. “With this $.80, and the additional $1.21 increase that support staff received last year, we have raised support staff base pay by over $2 per hour in as many years,” said Director of Human Resources, Chris Tobler. Special Education Teaching Assistants and Paraprofessionals will see an increase in their base pay of $1.00 per hour for next year and Administrative staff, excluding Superintendents, will earn $3,000 more in 2019-20. MPS was also able to add money to the Extra Duty stipends for jobs such as coaching or sponsoring certain clubs/activities, and now accepts 100% of an applicant's verified out-of-state experience.
“The Board recognizes the need for us to offer competitive salaries for our hard working staff,” Superintendent Charles Bradley said. The Oklahoma Policy Institute may state it best:
The positive interactions students have with their bus drivers or secretaries lie at the center
of building trusting relationships between students and educators, which is perhaps the most
critical ingredient to creating positive school climates.
“Our District has been recognized as an Oklahoman Top Workplace for the past two years, and this would not be possible without the herculean efforts of our administrators, teachers, and support staff. We are proud of them and the work they do each and every for our students,” said Bradley.
“We are still looking for qualified individuals to fill openings for next school year,” said Tobler. If interested, please visit www.bit.ly/MustangJobs to apply to join the Bronco Team.
