The Harmony Executive Board earlier this summer voted unanimously to provide a a $1,000 pay increase for all Houston-area employees currently on the teacher pay scale, as well as an additional $500 increase for those with an existing teacher certification.
The move increases the minimum salary for certified Harmony teachers in Greater Houston to $59,000.
Pay increases also were approved by the Harmony Public Schools Executive Board for teachers working in Dallas-Fort Worth, Beaumont, Bryan and Waco.
