In addition, the following bonus was offered.

For the 2022-2023 school year, eligible active employees will receive a one-time retention bonus to be paid to employees based on total verified work-related experience with SCPS.  Additionally, employees may receive credit for up to ten (10) years of other verified public school instructional (teaching) experience outside of SCPS. Employees with 10 years or more of verified experience as defined above, will receive $50 for each year of experience.

  • Examples:
    • Example 1: a teacher with 10 years of experience (10 with SCPS only) will receive a bonus of $500.00 (10 x $50 = $500.00).
    • Example 2: a teacher with 19 years of experience (10 outside of the district + 9 with SCPS = 19) will receive a bonus of $950.00 (19 x $50 = $950.00).
    • Example 3: a teacher with 28 years of experience (8 outside of the district + 20 with SCPS = 28) will receive a bonus of $1,400.00 (28 x $50 = $1,400.00).
  • Active service is defined as any time the employee is actively working, paid leave, or worker’s compensation leave.
  • The length of service for experience shall be determined based on years of active service as an employee, one day more than half of the employee’s contracted work year would count as a year of service.
  • The retention bonus would not be eligible for FRS and payroll taxes would be applicable.
  • The employee must be considered an active employee at the date in which the bonus is paid.

For the 2023-2024 school year, a guaranteed 2.00% recurring base salary increase inclusive of Teacher Salary Increase Allocation (TSIA).

The parties agree to reopen bargaining for Salaries and Compensation if the Florida Legislation increases the Base Student Allocation (BSA) greater than 2.00% (less any mandates, such as increases to FRS employer contribution rates).
