HOUSTON All Houston Independent School District employees will be getting a pay raise, if the district approves a $1.7 billion operating budget Thursday.

The raise is a result of rising property values. Teachers would get at least a $1,100 bump. Other staff would get a 3 percent raise.

Property owners expect to see your tax rate rise about 1 or 2 cents, because of the 2012 construction bond package.
