» FY2020 Proposed Budget


For the 2019/20 school year, Prescott Unified School District is proposing the following raises:


» Teachers — Certified teachers and teachers on assignment will receive 5% raise. The average salary of teachers employed in FY19 (prior year) was $41,224. The average salary of all teachers employed in FY20 (budget year) is $43,285; an increase of $2,061 when compared to FY19. For FY19 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 FY20, average salary of all teachers is based upon a budgeted amount. 


» All other employee groups (graded classified, psychologists, OTs, PTs, SLPs, IT, directors, administration, etc.) will receive a 2% raise. Note: Due to minimum wage increase on January 1, 2020, some graded classified employees will receive higher than a 2% raise.
