Updates from the Office of the Superintendent

In March 2023, the Gilroy Unified School District offered a total compensation increase of 11.25%, 10.5% on salary and 0.75% to cover the increased cost of health benefits, to all staff. 

The salary offer is the highest single year increase ever offered by the District.  This offer is also the highest salary increase among all 31 school districts in Santa Clara County for the 2022-23 school year. 

The District has increased compensation while managing decreases in the budget due to continued declining enrollment, which is happening throughout the County, state and nation.

Declining enrollment means declining revenues.  The District has approximately 200 fewer students this year and has experienced a decline of 1,255 students since 2016-17.  The District's annual budget would include $16.3 million in additional revenue this year alone, that could have been used to support students, had it never experienced the 1,255 enrollment decline.
