Approved icon

The Mansfield ISD School Board approved the 2022-23 school year budget, which focuses on instruction, the Vision 2030 strategic plan, safety, equity and social-emotional learning.

The balanced budget includes raises for all employees, as announced in April. The new starting teacher pay will be $60,500. There will also be no increase to medical insurance premiums.

The budget process started in December. Michele Trongaard, associate superintendent of business and finance, noted that everyone in the decision-making process made sure that the holistic well-being of students was at the forefront.

“This is a well-thought-out, balanced budget that supports Vision 2030 while granting employees raises and making sure students are always first,” said Trongaard. “Under the leadership of Superintendent Dr. Kimberley Cantu and the members of our school board, we were able to accomplish this and move our mission forward of inspiring and educating students to be productive citizens.”

MISD’s 2022-23 general operating budget totals $345.4 million. Debt service, which funds capital improvements, is $67.3 million. The budget for student nutrition, which is not funded through local tax dollars, was approved for a little less than $22 million.

The tax rate is scheduled to go for approval in August.
