Licensed

Jeffco Public Schools believes a licensed teacher develops their craft at an accelerated rate during the beginning years of their profession. The District also recognizes the significance that years of experience has regarding the overall effectiveness as a licensed professional. Therefore, you will notice a more accelerated approach in the salary schedule for teachers early in their Jeffco career. Advanced education also plays a role in excellence in teaching. As a result, the pay plan for new, incoming licensed professionals has been established to reward these concepts. As an educator completes a Master's degree and certain thresholds of graduate level credits, you will be eligible to move to higher salary lanes. Below are explanations of how years of service and degrees are considered when determining starting salary. To gain a better perspective of your potential salary as a licensed professional with Jeffco Public Schools, please read through the guidelines and utilize the calculator at the bottom of this page.
