Teacher Pay in Urban Districts

I recently wrote about teacher pay in 6 mid-size urban districts. Here’s what the numbers showed:

 

                                    Start                    10                          20                      TOP

MNPS                     $42,082                $44,536                 $54,800              $55,757

Louisville              $41,756                $53,759                 $69,514                $70,636

Charlotte               $37,946               $46,008                $53,954                $58,525

Austin                     $46,401               $48,837                $55,477                 $70,751

Atlanta                   $44,312               $54,167                 $62,075                 $66,467

Denver                   $38,765              $47,136                 $53,838*

*Denver has a teacher compensation system known as ProComp and the highest step is 13. Teachers in Denver earn the base pay indicated plus are eligible for incentives and base pay increases based on professional development, advanced degrees, and measures of student outcomes.

 

Here, Louisville and Austin stand out as strong performers in terms of lifetime earnings for teachers. Austin also boasts the best starting pay.
