Board Meeting Briefs – November 17, 2020

Consent Agenda

The Board of Trustees approved all Consent Agenda items.

 

Consider and Act on Pay Increase for Transportation Employees

The Board of Trustees approved the creation of a separate pay grade for bus drivers and an adjustment to the pay grades for other auxiliary transportation employees.

Currently, there are 23 DVISD bus driver vacancies. Historically DVISD has been unable to fill approximately 25% of the bus driver positions each year.

Furthermore, the salaries for bus drivers in surrounding areas range from $.86 to $4 per hour more than DVISD’s starting bus driver salary.  In the last month, four potential bus driver candidates have accepted positions in other districts that offer higher starting salaries.

In order to recruit and retain qualified bus drivers, administration recommends creating a separate pay grade for bus drivers and adjusting the pay grades for other auxiliary transportation employees.

The approved minimum salaries are as follows:

  • Bus driver, bus driver lead, mechanic helper-$18.00
  • Dispatcher, Scheduler-$18.50
  • Route Supervisor, Mechanic-$18.75
