I am relocating to Utah. I am a Veteran teacher of sixteen years with a Masters
degree. I have a job prospect with a charter school in that area, and I can not
find a salary schedule. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can look?
This is published online already. I too just changed districts. I lost seven
years of pay. I was only given 10 years of my 17 years of experience. Now they
are taking away the amount that they put into my pension. That is another way to
show the legislature's hate of teachers. Why are we not respected and
appreciated for the amount we work? I also spent $4000 of my own money to
provide the things that I need in my classroom to teach science lessons, math
lessons, reading lessons and supplies for the classroom when my budget ran out.
What about Charter School teachers' salaries? They are public school teachers.
Currently the Charter Schools do not publish their salary schedules online like
the district schools. Will Charter Schools have to publish their teachers'
I changed districts and lost several years...just another way we take it in the
seat.BTW people: Public employee salaries are public knowledge
already. No secret.
You should switch to a different district. I have taught 13 years with a
masters and I make $55,000. (Or are you witholding some of it, so your ex
doesn't get it?)
After teaching for 16 years and acquiring a Master's degree, I make $42,380/yr.
gross. That's before I send almost half of it to you and try to support my new
family with what's left of the other half after taxes.Is that what
the legislature wants to make readily available?
Most information posted now only deals with starting saleries, all grades and
tenure rates should be included. This law should also apply to all government
jobs, city, county, and state, including the elected officials rates. The law
should also include that employees of private business cannot be fired,
harassed, or treated unfairly for disclosing or discussing their pay among
themselves. Workers have the right to know each others pay and if they are being
treated fairly. Too many people working in Utah are brainwashed and that all
workers doing the same jboe deserve equal pay. True, what you earn is private
information, but how do you know if you aren't being underpaid? Most workers are
misinformed by management making them all believe they are getting paid more
than their co-workers, but how do they know withut knowing base saleries and pay
rates? How do they know if one employee is being paid more than they are doing
the same job? They don't. This kind of pay discrimination is prevelent in all
jobs in Utah and employees are working in blind trust and faith and lies.
It's already out there if you know where to look. It isn't hard to find. Wasted
time in the legislature once again.
Let's have their additional education shown also. Then we can all see that
another piece of paper wont make you a better teacher. Pay for performance not
tenure and paper. Pay the best teachers more and the dead wood? get rid of it.
Unions interfere with paying teachers what they are worth and reduce the take
home pay of all teachers.
Every school district lists their salary schedules on-line and share the
information publicly already. The only difference is that it may not be common
knowledge how long a teacher has been employed or how much education they have
acquired since they were first hired (the two methods of increasing pay). It seems odd that there would be a public outcry for teacher
salaries--they already among the lowest in the nation. I am all for letting it
become public. Teacher salaries range between $28K-$50K for the most part.
