“Effective the 2017-2018 school year, incoming bargaining unit members initially hired by the District on or after July 1, 2017, will be placed on the salary schedule based upon one (1) step for each year of public or accredited private elementary school teaching experience up to a maximum total of fifteen (15) years prior service credit.”

In addition, for teachers hired since July 1, 2007 the tentative agreement reads:

“Bargaining unit members who are jointly determined to have had six (6) years or more of qualifying and verified teaching experience upon the date of initial hire will be placed at the step she/he would have been placed at, up to step 16, including credit for years served since date of hire in the SCESD.  The employee’s salary placement under this provision will be effective July 1, 2017.”
