How to Calculate Step and Column for BUSD Teachers

STEP

COLUMN

 Example:

 August 2011: hired into BUSD with 8 years of comparable teaching experience:

 11-12 = Step 9

 12-13 = Step 10

 13-14 = Step 11

 14-15 = Step 12

 15-16 = Step 12

 16-17 = Step 12 

 17-18 = Step 13

 Calculating Step Placement:

 *Must work 75% of the days of the school year to advance to next Step

 *FTE doesn’t matter

 * Teachers coming to BUSD or REALM with service in other districts will stay three years at Step 12 (14.7.1 of the BUSD/BFT contract).

 *Teachers coming to BUSD or REALM with service in other districts: Work with all previous school employers counts as long as the “75% of the days of the year” rule is met and the employee had a credential.

 *Based on semester units

 *1 quarter unit = 2/3 of 1 semester unit

 *9 quarter units = 6 semester units

 *To move over on the salary schedule, PRIOR course approval is  REQUIRED

*Prior course approval is required for ALL courses, including:

 -- Special Ed Tiers 1 & 2

 -- Master’s degree courses 

 -- Clearing your credential

 -- BTSA

 -- Reading Recovery training     

 -- CM Training

 -- FOSS Training
