Pay increases: What to expect the next four years

A number of members have reached out to HSTA asking if we could repost information on the new contract pay increases. The printed contracts should be arriving at schools in the coming weeks and teachers can access the PDF version here.  If you want to reference the salary schedules, they start on page 80 of the new contract. You can also click here and look at the salary schedules.

10-month teachers should always refer to the single-letter schedules (A, B, C, D)

12-month teachers should always refer to the double-letter schedules (AA, BB, CC, DD)
