NYC DoE Teacher Pay Scale / Salary Charts

This page is not current.

For current scale click here.

Current Salary Schedule, and new Schedule effective October 1, 2006. Both can also be viewed here at New York Teacher Salary on the UFT website.

Update (January 2007): I have posted the new Salary Schedules (starting October 2007) here.

Note: I am aware that the numbers are appearing fuzzy. Hit the UFT link if you can’t read them. And eventually (no promise when), I will get clean numbers here. (8/16/06)

Note: I am having trouble displaying the schedules. The last two columns are cut off. If you are in the last two columns, you will need to go to the link above.

    I am a teacher, not a DoE administrator. They will give you some credit for experience, but there is a maximum number of years. You could contact them or try their website for more information

    I was a principal in one of the small NYC high schools, I resigned my position in 2004. I previosly work as a teacher for 14 years before I became administrator. Together I worked for the NYC Dept of Ed since 1986 until sept 2004 (18 years). I was appointed as Math teacher, then I was appointed as Math AP. I want to go back to teaching. Please, let me know if I entitled to get my appointed teaching position? and in which step I will be placed?
    Thank you for your attention.

    I am mathematics teacher for 5 years. The pay is terrible and I am almost willing to take any other job in mathematics. I have school loans up to my neck and find it impossible to move out of my parents house. It is so discouraging to know that in many years ahead it doesn’t look like it will be getting much better. That’s probably why all of the senior teachers are miserable!!!!!!

    What will my salary be when I am working as a 5th year teacher with my master’s +30? I keep reading the pay scale and am confused. I am currently a third year teacher making 43,000, if that information helps. Thanks!

  6. February 13, 2007 am28 4:16 am 4:16 am

    If you are in NYC, I think $62K. But I am not an expert. In particular, I don’t see how a 3rd year teacher is making $43K. 3A C1 shows $46K.

    What salary can a teacher with 4 years full time teaching experience and a Masters Degree in Mathematics expext to get in a NYC Public High School? I am in international (Ireland) teacher arriving in NYC to begin teaching in august

    I don’t know if they’ve made special arrangements about experience credit because of any special program(s) you are signed up for, but if you were locally recruited and hired, I’d assume you were starting at 5A. earned MA, or $52k, going up to $53k in October, and $56k in May (contractual increases).

    But you are reading my guess, not a real answer. Contact the people who recruited you.

    hi i have a very important inquiry, and would be very appreciative of someone can reply. i applied for my salary differential late. the deadline for spring was january and i just sent in the information now (may). is there anyway i can get that money for the salary increase which i missed reimbursed? thank you. -A

      The Department of Education is normally rigid when it comes to submitting the papework within that window of you completing your course requirements. If you missed the deadline, they will give you the hardest time to get that money back. It is almost impossible to get reimbursed after the deadline.

    Is there a specific legal time frame in which teachers are entitled to be notified if they are not going to be renewed. I have heard that
    in other states, teachers not notified by a specific date are
    entitled to their position

  11. May 22, 2007 am31 4:01 am 4:01 am

    You need to consult your contract or check with your union rep. If you are in NYC, I can help you find him or her. It would not be responsible of me to answer your question, since I am not certain of the answer.

      You have the salary based on how many years you have been with the city and your college credits ie bachelors, bachelors+30, masters, masters+3o.

      You being a dean, at least in HS means that you have to teach 3 periods and dedicate the rest for the role. It is a six year assignment, which means, once you finish the six years, they can re-hire you or replace you.

  13. July 11, 2007 am31 4:27 am 4:27 am

    A Dean, at least in NYC, is a teacher, who, instead of teaching a full load, trades off some classes for doing some deaning. That being said, there are precise rules for determining who is eligible to become a dean, and how dean’s are chosen.

    As to your question, a dean is a teacher, and makes a teacher’s salary.

    Hello, I have been a nyc teacher for 13 years and am now a literacy coach. I understand that we are getting a raise next year. Will it be approx. $ 80,000 ?

  17. September 22, 2007 pm30 9:47 pm 9:47 pm

    I am not certain. Is a coach a teacher with different responsibilities? You’ll need to contact your borough office for a good answer.

    In the meantime, you should look at the October 2007 scale, which is about to kick in. The one above will expire.

    This forum is so helpful! I just graduated with my BA and gained my inital certification…I am assuming I would start at 1a once I ontain a job? Also…what does ID stand for? If PD is credits earned in your content area…does that mean once you begin your Masters degree you get a salary increase before you complete the program? If so, how many credits do you need in your masters to go from BA (C1) to C1 + PD?

    Thanks a Bunch

  19. February 18, 2008 am29 10:44 am 10:44 am

    Two things. This is an old salary schedule. Click the tab for the New UFT Contract (up top) to reach the new scale.

    Second, click this link http://jd2718.wordpress.com/the-new-uft-contract/ to find the links for salary differential forms. That will bring you to a DoE document that (I hope) will answer some of your questions.

    The short answer is that you move across columns as you meet the specific requirements, assuming you file for the differentials. And ouy may meet some of these requirements en route to you masters.

    Thanks. The salary schedule I printed out is effective May 19, 2008 considering I will be looking to be hired as a new teacher in September 2008. Is this the right schedule for me?

    What exactly is a salary differential? Does this mean that I have to APPLY to get a salary increas?

    Again, any clue as to what “ID” stands for?

    Thanks!!! Diana

    I am currently in Florida, planning to move to NY this year. I was wondering if you need a Master’s degree to teach in NY????

  24. Lee permalink
    June 27, 2008 pm30 7:20 pm 7:20 pm

    You do not need a masters degree but your bachelors needs to have been in a teaching program and of course you need to take the nyc test: LAST and ATSW as well as the content specialty test in the areas that your degree is in. If you have a bachelors in another program, check out the nyc teaching fellows website where they will pay for your masters in something of their chosing if you work in an underpriveleged school or in a high needs area such as special education or bilingual education. Hope this was helpful Sophia

    I was curious – I have two masters degrees (one in Special Ed the other ESOL – intermediate Spanish) and over 8 years of experience. I am planning on moving to NYC and teaching but am worried I will not receive the salary scale I saw advertised – – You mentioned above “if” they give credit for both years and degrees – Is there are reason I wouldn’t get this – I don’t think I can afford to move there otherwise-
    would I start at 7b?

    I have experience as an permanent substitute for four years. I have jsut recieved my certification in special education for grades 1-5. I am offfered by a charter school in the bronx to get paid 46,000. Is the pay scale that is comparable to the board of ed?

  27. August 19, 2008 am31 5:20 am 5:20 am

    It’s a good question that I cannot answer. 46k is close to the starting pay without experience, and without credits above the bachelors, and without credits in your content area. However, I don’t know if any of your sub work would count (I tend to doubt it, but that is just a guess).

    And we don’t know what happens after the first year. The chart you want, by the way, is located here.

    I am a 5 year paraprofessional who has obtained my bachelor’s, passed the LAST, ATS-W, and the Secondary Mathematics, CST. I’m awaiting my Initial Certification before finding a job. Am I on the right path? What pay scale will I be on upon being hired as a teacher? Do I get to keep my senority once becoming a teacher or will I lose my time?

    Hi I have a question….I’m in a doe/charter school…it’s run by the doe but not unionized…..anyway not happy at all. I was wondering if I have to wait until my contract expires or could I get out of my contract earlier. I would like to leave earlier but was told by a few people I could get “blackballed” and have trouble getting another job in the doe ….does anyone have any clue on what I should do?

    Hi, I have a question about transfers from out of state. I am a Florida teacher with 9 years experience in the charter school system. What would be my pay rate if I were to teach in NY given my experience in Florida?

  31. October 19, 2008 pm31 8:06 pm 8:06 pm

    You will need to apply for a salary step placement (see comment 28, above). There is a maximum number of years of credit that they will give you. I’m not certain if it is 6 or 8.

    I AM AN ART TEACHER WITH A MASTERS IN ART ED K-12. I AM ALMOST FINISHED WITH MY 30 CREDITS ABOVE MY MASTERS AND I EXPECT TO COMPLETE THIS JOURNEY BY MARCH 2010. I AM STILL WAITING FOR THE 2 YEARS 9 MONTHS WHERE I WAS A SUB IN LONG ISLAND WITH THE NYSTRS AND NOW I AM IN THE NYC TRS. I WAS TOLD MANY MONTHS AGO ( I APPLIED FOR THIS ALMOST 2 YEARS AGO!!!) THAT IT CAN TAKE A LONG TIME BEFORE I RECEIVE THE CREDIT TOWARDS MY PENSION OR TIME IN THE SYSTEM??
    I AM STILL WAITING.
    IN ADDITION I AM GOING TO A PENSION CONSULTATION IN DECEMBER. I AM VERY CONCERNED AND WISH TO KNOW WHAT WILL MY SALARY BE WHEN I ENTER MY 7TH OR 8TH YEAR?? PLEASE TELL ME SINCE THE CHARTS ARE VERY UNCLEAR AND WASHED OUT AND DIFFICULT TO READ.
    THANK YOU SO MUCH. HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY.

      Indeed, it can take a very long time to get pension credit transferred. Ask at your consultation.

      Your salary will depend on education and experience (including any step they credit it you from Long Island). Ask them to give you a printed copy of the salary schedule, and they should be able to help you read it.

    Hi,

    This is a very informative blog. I hope that you can provide a bit of clarification for me. I have read that teachers with a Master’s degrees can earn salaries starting at $51K/yr. If accepted into a program like Teach For America or the New York City Teaching Fellows program, I would be attending classes to earn a master’s in education. Currently, I have a master’s degree in journalism. Would my starting salary reflect this non-education Master’s degree or does the $51K starting salary only refer to people who have Master’s degrees in education?

    Thanks,
    Sarah Stein

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice
