Because of the HSTA's collective work to push for a strong contract, public school teachers will see significant increases in pay this school year. Effective the first day of the second quarter, educators will receive a three-and-a-half percent (3.5%) across-the-board pay raise. That pay increase will show up starting with their Nov. 5 paychecks. In all, there are various raises worth nearly 14 percent over the four years of the contract, which expires in 2021.
Also, this is a great time to move up in pay by reclassifying. Last year was the fifth year of the negotiated 21 hours and 3 credits. Even if teachers haven’t taken any additional professional development credits, as long as they have been teaching more than five years, and are not already Class 7, they can still move up in class and give themselves a raise. Go to PDE3 to learn how.
Note: public charter school teachers may have different processes in their school related to posting of credits and reclassification. Check with your faculty representative or HSTA UniServ Director for more information.
New hires receive a $2,500 incentive after they have achieved tenure. Find more information in the probationary credit section on page 34 of your contract under teaching conditions and hours.
The HSTA also negotiated an annual pay differential of $3,000 for teachers in eight hard-to-staff geographical areas around the state:
Teachers who take on additional responsibilities earn these amounts of annual supplemental pay:
