August 2015

Please be reminded that if you have paperwork to turn in for salary advancement, the deadline is approaching.

  1. 8.7.4  Effective with the 2014-2015 school year, re-classifications will be made twice per year, with additional training to be submitted on or before August 30 for adjustments to be effective with the September 15 pay date and additional training to be submitted by January 15 for adjustments to be made effective with the first day of the second semester.

Updated Salary Info: 2014

All salary advancement information including any in-service hour certificates that were taken after February 1, 2014 are due to Stephanie Williams by August 15th in order to qualify for any salary advancement for the 2014-2015 school year.


Any in-service hours not turned in by the deadline date will become unusable for salary advancement.  Therefore,  if you have taken anything between February 1 and August 15th that add up to an in-service hour, you should turn them in and they will be banked for any future salary advancement.


Also, please note contract language 8.7 pertaining to the filing of course credits —  if you wish to be considered for a change in salary classification, an official transcript is due by August 30th. Recognizing the tight time frame of summer coursework a grade for the class could temporarily take the place of a transcript.  You must, however, provide a transcript as soon as possible.


The next opportunity for salary reclassification is January 15.

Thank you.
