Raymondville ISD Board of Trustees Adopts Balanced Budget for 2024-2025 Fiscal Year

RAYMONDVILLE, TX – June 27, 2024 – On Thursday night, the Raymondville Independent School District (RISD) Board of Trustees held a public hearing followed by a board meeting to discuss and adopt the budget for the 2024-2025 fiscal year. Chief Financial Officer David Longoria presented a balanced budget totaling $29.5 million, which includes a 3% raise for all staff members, translating to a $1,700 raise for teachers.


The budget presentation covered three critical areas: child nutrition, the general fund, and debt service. Expenditures matched revenues across all three budgets, ensuring that all budgets are balanced. Superintendent Stetson Roane highlighted that the district continues to provide all employees with free health coverage, with no increases for the past six years.


In his remarks, CFO David Longoria emphasized that the budget was built with a focus on maintaining high-quality instruction, ensuring student and staff safety, supporting infrastructure, and offering competitive compensation.


“The adoption of this balanced budget reflects our commitment to our students and staff,” Longoria said. “We are proud to offer a pay increase while providing essential benefits without additional costs to our employees.”


Board President John Solis remarked, “The board was committed to passing a balanced budget and providing teacher raises. Our schools have achieved great academic results, and it is imperative to reward the staff and keep pay competitive. We believe this budget will help us retain and attract top talent to continue our mission of educational excellence.”
