For the 2018/19 school year, Prescott Unified School District is proposing the following raises:

» Teachers — Certified teachers and teachers on assignment will receive 11% raise. The average salary of teachers employed in FY18 (prior year) was $38,861.

For FY18 teacher average salary, end-of-the-year FTE and teacher contract base amount were used. Additional revenue sources for teachers, e.g. clubs, coaching, department chair, Prop 301 monies, extra revenue sources for teachers, etc., are not included in the average salaries. As hiring is not complete for FY19, average salary of all teachers is based upon a budgeted amount. Updated FY19 average salaries will be included in upcoming FY19 budget revisions.

» “Graded” Classified Employees — Classified employees on the graded placement schedule will receive between a 10% to 20.2% raise. Classified employees’ raises are calculated based upon the new classified agreement schedule.

» All other employee groups (psychologists, OTs, PTs, SLPs, IT, directors, administration, etc.) will receive a 5% raise.

Other information for FY19:

» For FY19, the estimated number of FTE certificated employees is 235.
