Katy ISD Ranks in Forbes List of Best Employers in TexasKaty ISD Ranks in Forbes List of Best Employers in Texas6/25/2019 10:51:52 PM<div class="ExternalClass2C2172E9AE7E429B8FB3592919AA6701"><p><span style="text-align:justify;">Looking to work for one of the "best-liked" organizations by its employees?</span><span style="text-align:justify;">  </span><span style="text-align:justify;">That search is closer than many might think.</span><span style="text-align:justify;">  </span><span style="text-align:justify;">Katy Independent School District was recently identified by Forbes Magazine as one of the </span><em style="text-align:justify;">Best Employers in Texas</em><span style="text-align:justify;">.</span><span style="text-align:justify;">  </span><span style="text-align:justify;">In fact, it was the only school district in Texas to be included in the list of top 25 employers.</span><span style="text-align:justify;"> </span><br></p><p>"To be one of only two school districts included on the Forbes <em>Best Employers in Texas</em> list is a testament to the talent, dedication and hard work of the teachers and staff who serve the nearly 81,000 students of Katy ISD," said Superintendent of Schools Ken Gregorski.  "Our employees fulfill roles not only as educators, but as caregivers, clerks, maintenance crews, and other professionals supporting the teaching and learning taking place in our classrooms.  As superintendent of this great school district I am very honored to be working alongside each and every one of our Katy ISD employees," added Gregorski.</p><p>Market research was conducted by Forbes and Statista to identify its first-ever list of America's Best Employers by state.  Nearly 200 companies were ranked among the best in Texas, with Katy ISD identified as #22 on the list.  A sample of more than 80,000 U.S. employees at companies, with at least 500 people, were surveyed.  <br></p><p><br></p></div>
Katy ISD Teachers and Employees to See Six Percent Pay IncreaseKaty ISD Teachers and Employees to See Six Percent Pay Increase6/25/2019 12:29:14 AM<div class="ExternalClassB0357914A5DC478DB02EDE8A32AD2C06"><p><span style="text-align:justify;">This coming school year all Katy ISD employees will receive an approximate six percent pay increase, while teachers and instructional paraprofessionals will have the opportunity to earn up to eight percent. The additional two percent increase for those teachers and paraprofessionals will derive from an attendance-based performance incentive.</span><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The base salary increase for employees will come in the form of an approximate four percent raise, with two other lump sums during the fall semester— one August 15 for returning staff, and the other in December for all employees.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">"After making sure we reward all of our staff, there is some additional money we've set aside to focus on those folks who have the greatest impact on student performance — our classroom teachers," said Ken Gregorski, Katy ISD Superintendent.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The District also plans on providing stability through its benefits package. While some Texas school districts anticipate premium increases this coming school year, Katy ISD will be holding its benefit premiums at last year's rates. Likewise, the District's existing health insurance plans will remain unchanged. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"My commitment upon accepting this position was to focus on taking care of our employees through a competitive compensation package, thus ensuring we're able to recruit and retain the best teachers around," said Gregorski.  "This pay increase, alongside the stability in benefits costs, is the most significant investment in Katy ISD's employee compensation package in recent District history," he added. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Katy ISD's move to increase pay for all employees and offer additional compensation incentives for teachers, is in part due to the District's long term fiscal management practices, along with the passage of Senate Bill 500 that provides Harvey related refunds and House Bill 3, with the District's compensation plan exceeding the priorities established by the Texas Legislature.<br></p><p><br></p></div>

Katy ISD Reaches Historical Goal of Enrolling its 80,000th Student!!Katy ISD Reaches Historical Goal of Enrolling its 80,000th Student!!11/9/2018 9:25:28 PM<div class="ExternalClass5A748F759DCB42329829082C02EE7D43"><p><span style="text-align:justify;">Expecting to end the year with an enrollment of 80,000 students, or fairly close to it, Katy Independent School District has reached this monumental milestone two months prior to the end of 2018.  Davidson Elementary third-grader Christopher Morcos was the lucky student.  He never expected his first week of school to be such an unforgettable experience.  Christopher received a warm welcome by Superintendent Lance Hindt and other district officials.  He was also recognized with several Century of Legacy gifts to celebrate the meaningful occasion.  The celebration comes precisely when Katy ISD is commemorating 100 years of educational excellence. </span><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">"We are very excited about the continued growth here in Katy ISD.  It is always great to welcome students and families to the proud traditions and exciting future here in Katy ISD," said Dr. Vonda Washington, assistant superintendent for school leadership and support.  "Gaining our 80,000 student while celebrating a legacy of 100 years dedicated to learning is remarkable," added Washington. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Though Christopher was born in America this will be his first time attending a school in the United States.  Just this week, the Morcos family moved from Egypt to Katy, Texas. For them, finding a good school home for their son was a top priority.  "I did my research and everyone recommended Katy ISD as the best school district," said Peter Morcos, Christopher's father.  "We decided to move into Katy and look for a house in this area so that we are able to go to a Katy ISD school," added Morcos.   </p><p style="text-align:justify;">It's been no secret that families are moving west of Houston into what was known as a small suburb.  Communities zoned to the district have been flourishing at outstanding rates making Katy ISD one of the fastest growing school district, not just in Texas, but in the nation.  The quality of education offered in Katy ISD classrooms has attracted families from all parts of the world to what is now being called a destination school district.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://youtu.be/hy4wlNcTpIg" title="Katy ISD Reaches Historical Milestone of Enrolling 80,000 Students!"><img src="/PublishingImages/Lists/latestnews/AllItems/110918_KDE_80000%20Student%20in%20Katy%20ISD.jpg" alt="110918_KDE_80000 Student in Katy ISD.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:393px;" /></a><br></p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ugakv368u3txdq2/AAD8v6dOSjy4DCep3cH0TjJ4a?dl=0">Photo gallery of 80,000th student celebration for newscasts and publications.</a><br></p><p><br></p></div>
