Goose Creek Board of Trustees Finalizing District Compensation Package

The Goose Creek Board of Trustees is finalizing the district compensation package for next school year.


Chief Financial Officer Brigitte Clark presented several compensation options during the May 16th School Board Meeting. During the presentation, board members asked questions and provided comments on the three proposed options for employee compensation. The school board discussed ways to provide additional incentives to Goose Creek educators. All scenarios include a 2% general pay increase for all employees.


The school board expressed interest in offering a retention stipend for all current (contract start date is on or before 6/30/22), full-time employees who return in 2022-2023. Various dollar amounts were proposed in the compensation options, ranging from $500-$1,000.


The proposed options also include one or two additional local days for full-time employees who do not receive vacation days. Full-time employees currently receive five local days and five state days of leave each year. Additional days will allow more personal time for staff.


President Richard Clem requested that Ms. Clark present two compensation options at the June 6th board meeting. The Board of Trustees will vote on the final compensation package at this time.


The district funded 100% of the proposed 2022-2023 Compensation Package with federal COVID relief funds provided through $60 million ESSER grants (ESSER I&II – granted by former president; ESSER III granted by current president). Goose Creek has managed these grant funds prudently, and this is the only reason we can reward our hard-working teachers and employees for their service.
