Methodology for Annual salary for a first year teacher with a bachelor's degree

Longevity pay is only included if it is noted on the salary schedule document. If there are multiple salary schedules for teachers based on length of work year, NCTQ uses the schedule which best applies to general teachers (generally the shortest length of work year that still makes a full school year). NCTQ assumes that steps and years of experience align (i.e., that a teacher advances a step each year), unless there is evidence of a salary freeze or the district provides clear evidence that years of experience and step do not align.

Number of completed years of experience for a teacher with a bachelor's and/or master's degree to reach maximum salary

Graph reflects 2018-2019 salary data. The "other" category is comprised of districts without a salary schedule; where experience is only one factor in salary advancement; where years to maximum salary is different for BA and MA; etc.
Close Box

Methodology for Number of completed years of experience for a teacher with a bachelor's and/or master's degree to reach maximum salary

The responses here reflect the number of steps minus one it takes to reach maximum salary (i.e., there are no further salary increases) in the BA and MA lanes. If a salary schedule has the same maximum salary for Steps 25-30 our answer will be year 24, despite the fact that the schedule itself lists the same salary until step 30. Additionally, the answer given assumes no step freezes. NCTQ assumes that steps and years of experience align (i.e., that a teacher advances a step each year), unless the district provides clear evidence that years of experience and steps do not align.

Maximum annual salary available with required education and experience

Methodology for Maximum annual salary available with required education and experience

The responses here reflect the number of steps minus one it takes to reach maximum salary (i.e., there are no further salary increases). Longevity pay is only included if it is noted on the salary schedule document. If there is stipend pay for an advanced degree, we calculate maximum salary by adding the stipend for the highest degree (typically PhD) to the highest salary available on the highest lane on the schedule, unless the district has otherwise specified how the stipend is paid. If there are multiple salary schedules for teachers based on length of work year, NCTQ uses the schedule which best applies to general teachers (generally the shortest length of work year that still makes a full school year). NCTQ assumes that steps and years of experience align (i.e., that a teacher advances a step each year), unless there is evidence of a salary freeze or the district provides clear evidence that years of experience and steps do not align.

Average percent increase in pay for each additional year of experience

Close Box

Methodology for Average percent increase in pay for each additional year of experience

This question is calculated using the formula (step 2 - step 1) / step 1 for each step of the salary schedule. All responses are then averaged across both the bachelor's and master's lanes (i.e., there is only 1 average that accounts for both lanes). When the BA lane reaches its maximum salary (i.e., there are no further salary increases) earlier than the MA lane, we will calculate the average increase through the year at which the BA salary maxes out. We do not include the year in which the BA salary maxes out until the year in which the MA salary maxes out, since this increase is 0%. NCTQ assumes that steps and years of experience align (i.e., that a teacher advances a step each year), unless there is evidence of a salary freeze or the district provides clear evidence that years of experience and steps do not align.

Average annual adjustment in pay for cost of living and other factors

Methodology for Average annual adjustment in pay for cost of living and other factors

This question matches step for step between the current and previous year. The following formula is used (current year - previous year)/previous year. The formula is used for each step and is then averaged across both the bachelor's and master's lanes (i.e., there is only 1 average that accounts for both lanes). When the BA lane reaches its maximum salary (i.e., there are no further salary increases) earlier than the MA lane, we will calculate the average COLA through the year at which the BA salary maxes out and the year the MA salary maxes out. We do not look at the years in the BA column after the salary maxes out. NCTQ assumes that steps and years of experience align (i.e., that a teacher advances a step each year), unless there is evidence of a salary freeze or the district provides clear evidence that years of experience and steps do not align.

Methodology for Average total change in salary, including experience, cost of living, and other factors

This question does not match step for step between the current and previous year, rather it looks at step 2 in the current year and step 1 in the previous year. The following formula is used (step 2 from current year - step 1 from previous year / step 1 from previous year. The formula is used for each step and is then averaged across both the bachelor's and master's lanes (i.e., there is only 1 average that accounts for both lanes).
