The teachers contract issue has piqued my interest. I have read the current contract on the Juneau Education Association (JEA) web site and this is what I found.
The lowest annual teacher starting salary is $46,063. The highest annual salary tops out after 18 years at $84,112 for a masters degree, with 36 credits and 18 years experience. I found the median at $60,192 annually. One contract sentence reads, “The salary schedule for the 2012-2013 school year will remain the same as the FY 2012 salary schedule”.
