Record High Raises for Teachers and School Employees

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (November 15, 2021) – The Washington Township School Board recently approved compensation increases and bonuses for teachers and school staff in the 2021-2022 school year. “The compensation increases and stipends, which are made possible by increased revenues in State Tuition Support, Operating Referendum funds, and grant dollars, will help to ensure that we continue to attract and retain the quality educators and staff for which Washington Township is known,” said Board President Don Kite. “Educators and school staff must continue to be valued.”

In addition to the record high stipends, these increases reflect the largest base increases in the last 10 years for Washington Township Schools employees and for the third consecutive year, record high raises for teachers in Washington Township. For example, a first year teacher who was hired in 2018-2019 has seen a 23 percent increase in their base salary over the last four years as a teacher in Washington Township.   MSDWT custodians, instructional aides, child nutrition staff, office staff, and other classified staff received a total increase of 8 percent increase in their base salary or hourly rate in 2021.   MSDWT teachers and employees have also received multiple one-time bonuses over the last four years in addition to these base salary increases.

“This has been a unique and challenging school year and we are extremely pleased that these record-breaking compensation increases are one way that we can show our tremendous appreciation for all MSDWT employees,” said Matt Kaiser, Director of Human Resources. “We thank all Washington Township teachers, administrators, and staff for their continued service and dedication to our great school district.”

Washington Township continues to hire highly qualified and diverse staff.   If you are interested in employment, please visit the Washington Township website.
