The Americans with Disabilities Act The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 seeks to eliminate discrimination against individuals with disabilities in the areas of employment, transportation and public accommodations. ADA prohibits employers from excluding people from jobs, services, activities or benefits based on their disabilities. The ADA defines disability with respect to an individual as:

  • A physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities of such individual;
  • A record of such an impairment; or
  • Being regarded as having such an impairment.

It also defines:

  • A qualified individual with a disability as one who possesses the requisite skills, education, experience and training for a position, and who can, with or without reasonable accommodations, perform the essential functions of the position the individual desires or holds.
  • A substantial limitation as an impairment that prevents the performance of a major life activity that the average person in the general population can perform; or a significant restriction as to the condition, manner or duration under which an individual can perform a particular major life activity as compared to the average person in the general population.
  • A reasonable accommodation as a modification or adjustment to the job application process or the work environment that enables a qualified person with a disability to be considered for a position, or enjoy the same benefits and privileges of employment as are enjoyed by similarly situated employees without disabilities.

Major life activities include:

  • Walking
  • Seeing
  • Speaking
  • Hearing
  • Breathing
  • Learning
  • Performing manual tasks
  • Caring for one’s self
  • Working
  • Eating

Procedures for Requesting ADA Accommodations

Employees can initiate the accommodation process by requesting an accommodation for a disability to the Department of Employee Relations. If you believe you have a qualifying disability and are seeking accommodations in the workplace to enable you to perform your essential job functions, you should contact the District’s ADA Coordinator, Nicole Holland at 414-9687, to begin the interactive interview process as required by federal law.

Please note: Having a medical condition alone is not enough to make an employee eligible for accommodations under the American with Disabilities Act Amendment Act of 2008 (ADAAA).

The district reserves the right to obtain an independent medical opinion concerning the impairment for which an employee seeks an accommodation at district expense.

To request a copy of the complaint form, call (866) 632-9992. Submit your completed form or letter to USDA by: (1) mail: U.S. Department of Agriculture Office of the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights 1400 Independence Avenue, SW Washington, D.C. 20250-9410; (2) fax: (202) 690-7442; or (3) email: program.intake@usda.gov.

2019 Compensation Increase

During the 86th legislative session, Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law House Bill 3, a historic overhaul of the state’s public education finance system.

The funds AISD will receive mean the district can increase compensation for all staff, with AISD more than doubling the amount the state requires. AISD Is committing $48 million in permanent compensation increases including the following items:

  • 7% compensation increase for teachers, counselors and librarians with more than five years of experience; 
  • 6% compensation increase for all other staff;
  • A stipend increase to our special education teachers, an investment of about $500,000; and
  • A stipend increase to our bilingual teachers, which reflects a $1.2 million investment. 

Q: What is the compensation increase?

A: The Texas Legislature has approved House Bill 3, which overhauls the state’s public education finance system. This means that additional funding is being allocated to Austin ISD, and the district has committed to investing part of that funding to increase pay for staff.

Q: Which employees WILL receive the raise? 

A: Regular employees working in benefits-eligible positions, employed at least 50% are eligible for the raise. Employees must have been employed during the 2018-2019 school year to be eligible for the raise.

  • 7% compensation increase for teachers, counselors and librarians with more than five years of experience.
  • 6% compensation increase for all other staff.
  • An annual stipend increase of $1000 for bilingual teachers who serve bilingual students in a district-designated bilingual or dual language classroom. Annual bilingual stipend for this group will now be $3500.
  • An annual stipend increase of $500 for special education teachers who serve special education students in a district-designated special education program. Special education stipends for this group will be a total of $1500 annually.

Q: Which employees WILL NOT receive the raise? 

A:

  • Employees newly hired for the 19-20 school are not eligible for the raise. However, employees in this group may receive a market pay adjustment based on the implementation of new pay structures.
  • Temporary-hourly, substitute or contract employees are not eligible for the raise.
  • School nurses are not employed by Austin ISD, and are instead funded via a partnership with a third-party and are not eligible for the raise.

Q: When will I see the raise on my paycheck?

A: Although these increases will go into effect for all employees for the 2019–20 school year, time is needed for thorough and correct implementation of new pay rates.

  • Monthly employees should expect to see the raise reflected in their September 30th check.
  • Biweekly employees should expect to see the raise in their Sept. 20 biweekly check.
  • This check will also include retroactive pay from the employee’s position start date for the 2019-20 school year.
  • Unlike one-time payments, compensation increases will be spread across employee pay periods for the 2019-20 school year.

Aumento en la compensación de 2019

Durante la 86ª sesión legislativa, gobernador Greg Abbott firmó el Proyecto de Ley 3 de la Cámara de Representantes, una reforma histórica del sistema financiero de educación pública del estado.

Los fondos que obtendrá el AISD significan que el AISD puede aumentar la compensación de todo el personal, ofreciendo más del doble de lo que requiere el estado.

El AISD está comprometiendo $48 millones en aumentos permanentes de compensación, incluyendo los siguientes:

  • un aumento de 7% en la compensación de los maestros, consejeros y bibliotecarios con más de cinco años de experiencia;
  • un aumento de 6% en la compensación de todo el resto del personal;
  • un aumento del estipendio para nuestros maestros de educación especial, una inversión de aproximadamente $500,000; y
  • un aumento del estipendio para nuestros maestros bilingües, que refleja una inversión de $1.2 millones.

P: ¿Cuál es el aumento en la compensación?

R: La Asamblea Legislativa de Texas ha aprobado el Proyecto de Ley 3 de la Cámara de Representantes, que hace un ajuste en el sistema financiero de la educación pública del estado. Esto significa que se están asignando más fondos al Austin ISD y el distrito se ha comprometido a invertir parte de ese financiamiento en un aumento de pago para el personal.

P: ¿Cuáles empleados OBTENDRÁN el aumento? 

R: Los empleados regulares que trabajan en posiciones elegibles para obtener beneficios que estén empleados al menos un 50% del tiempo son elegibles para obtener el aumento.

  • Aumento del 7% al salario de los maestros, consejeros y bibliotecarios con más de cinco años de experiencia
  • Aumento del 6% al salario de todo el resto del personal
  • Un aumento de $1000 al estipendio para maestros bilingües que sirven a estudiantes bilingües en un salón de clases que el distrito ha designado como bilingüe o de Lenguaje Dual. El estipendio anual para este grupo bilingüe ahora será de $3500.
  • Un aumento de $500 al estipendio anual para maestros de educación especial que sirven a estudiantes de educación especial en un programa de Educación Especial designado por el distrito. Los estipendios para este grupo de educación especial serán de un total anual de $1500.

P: ¿Cuáles empleados NO OBTENDRÁN el aumento? 

R:

  • Los empleados temporales por hora, y los sustitutos o contratistas no son elegibles para obtener el aumento.
  • Los enfermeros escolares no están empleados por el Austin ISD, y en cambio están financiados por una asociación con un tercero y no son elegibles para obtener el aumento.

 

P: ¿Cuándo veré el aumento en mi cheque de pago?

R: Aunque estos aumentos entrarán en efecto para todos los empleados en el ciclo escolar 2019-20, se necesita tiempo para la implementación total y correcta de las nuevas tasas de pago.

  • Los empleados mensuales deben esperar ver el aumento reflejado en su cheque del 30 de septiembre.
  • Los empleados bisemanales deben esperar ver el aumento en su cheque bisemanal del 20 de septiembre.
  • Este cheque también incluirá el pago retroactivo desde la fecha de inicio del puesto del empleado para el ciclo escolar 2019–20.
  • A diferencia de los pagos por única vez, los aumentos de compensación se dividirán entre los periodos de pago del empleado durante el ciclo escolar 2019–20.
