See DPS’ Proposed Teacher Salary Schedule(s)

DPS’ most recent proposal to improve teacher pay includes three teacher salary schedules to help teachers see what they would earn over time in our district.

The first schedule shows the equivalent of “base” salary — what a teacher would earn without any incentives or other additional pay opportunities. Based on current data, 28% of DPS teachers would be placed on this schedule.

The second schedule shows what most DPS teachers would earn under the proposal. That’s because our current data shows 72% of DPS teachers would earn at least one $2,500 incentive annually.

The third schedule shows what a third group of DPS teachers would earn under the proposal. Our current data shows 37% of DPS teachers would earn at least two $2,500 incentives or another $5,000 annually.
