The Board will adopt salary schedules for its professional staff, and each staff member will be placed on the schedule at a salary level that is commensurate with, but not limited to, the staff member’s educational training, prior experience, and experience in the district. The schedule adopted by the Board will remain in effect until changed or modified by the Board.

Salary increments will be conditional upon evidence of the continued professional growth of the teacher. Employees who do not comply with the requirements of the Board and/or the state may not be granted salary increases or may not be retained on the staff.

Placement on the salary schedule will be in accordance with requirements developed by the administration and approved by the Board.

Salaries will be reviewed annually, prior to the organizational meeting of the Board in July. The superintendent will be responsible for surveying other school systems to determine salaries being paid for comparable positions in each district.
