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.
