Charter School Salary Schedules or Policies (current and prior two years)

  1. Teachers on TCP

All DSST Teachers who are evaluated on the Teacher Career Pathway will be eligible for an annual percentage raise based on their performance using the chart below. The actual amount of this raise will be determined by three factors:

  1. The Culture, Team and Instruction (CTI) score; 1-5

  2. Student Achievement data for all of the teacher’s courses; A,B or C

  3. Current salary

  1. Teachers NOT on TCP

Beginning from the 2018-19 school year, full-time DSST Teachers, who are not on TCP will be allocated a raise through the non-instructional raise pool. Each year non-instructional staff are eligible for a percentage raise driven by the total available raise pool, the employee’s performance and their current salary.  The non-instructional raise pool allocation is lower than TCP raises at high performance levels. For more information on the Teacher Career Pathway, please review the TCP Guidebook.
