Governor’s teacher pay proposal

Thanks to the underappreciated Financial and Business Services staff at the N.C. Department of Public Instruction, we know how Governor McCrory’s proposed budget would change the teacher salary schedule for the upcoming school year.  Teachers in years 1 -12 would receive the largest percentage increases (see below).  Beyond year 12, teachers receive a 2 percent increase.

Remember that most teachers have a ten month contract, so multiply the monthly salary by 10, not 12, to get an annual pay figure.

(Update: Just to clarify, the chart includes advancement to the next step on the salary schedule.  Specifically, the percentage increase represents the change from the legislated monthly salary to the proposed monthly salary on the next step.  For example, a teacher on step 6 would receive the proposed salary on step 7 and that is the percentage increase calculated in the fourth column.  Sorry for any confusion.)
