2.      Sixty (60) or more college hours

3.      Bachelor’s degree

4.      Master’s degree

Official verification of the education level must be provided to the Human Resources office prior to being placed on the salary schedule.


1.      One (1) step for each year (minimum of 120 days per year) as a full-time teacher at the secondary or post-secondary level.
