How does a certificated employee advance on the salary schedule?
Credit is granted toward salary advancement for units earned after receiving the Bachelor’s Degree, including post-graduate units received prior to Bachelor’s Degree, as shown on an official transcript from a college or university only if they are:
a) Earned at accredited colleges or universities with at least a “C” grade equivalent or earned at non-accredited colleges or universities with at least a “C” grade or equivalent and are accepted for credit on the official transcripts of accredited colleges or universities or CTC Induction of Intern Programs.
b) Clearly and substantially supportive of the employee’s assignment or the employee’s District approved goal.
c) Units shall be recorded as semester units. The formula to convert from quarter units to semester units shall be: quarter units x .667 = semester units.
With prior District approval, credit may be granted toward salary schedule advancement for lower division units and upper division or graduate units not covered under part (a), earned with at least a “C” grade or equivalent after the date of receiving the Bachelor’s Degree as shown on an official transcript from a college or university.
No credit is granted for units earned during the regular school year in excess of nine (9) semester units or twelve (12) quarter units. Requests to exceed this requirement may be submitted to the Associate Superintendent, Human Resources.
A school nurse will receive two (2) units of credit toward salary schedule placement for completion of each thirty (30) hours of continuing education of the type that is utilized to keep a current California Nursing License. This shall apply to hours earned after September 1, 1985.
