When the District hires teachers who have previous experience, one step on the schedule for each year of experience up to a maximum of step 8 may be granted. For positions considered "hard to fill" the District may grant up to step 11 on the salary schedule and for positions considered "extremely hard to fill" the District may grant up to step 13. Placement on the salary schedule is determined by years of experience and graduate credits and degrees beyond the Bachelor's degree. Placement on the salary schedule is contingent upon the Negotiated Agreemet with the Englewood Educators. For additional information, please reference Article 6 and Appendix A on page 65 of the Negotiated Agreement.
