Salary Information

Bargaining Unit

Salary steps (vertical movement) are based upon years of service, as determined by the Human Resources Team in relation to the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

Salary grades (horizontal movement) are based upon educational degree(s) earned and/or number of credits (i.e., +15).

Professional Staff: In most instances on the professional staff salary schedule, 1 step = 1 year of PA public school experience, up to step 5. After that, each step is worth 1.5 – 2 years of experience due to compaction. For licensed professionals, years of experience are based on time spent working directly with children.

Paraprofessional Staff: Due to heavy compaction of steps during the last two CBAs, most paraeducators will begin employment at a step 1.

Salaries are non-negotiable, as provided for by the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
