Teacher Pay Scale — Bridgewater, NJ

January 12, 2008 pm31 8:36 pm

It’s time to update the pay scales here, and add a few more. To kick things off, earlier this week an anonymous commenter sent a link to the current Bridgewater/Raritan, NJ pay scales. Here’s the link, and here’s a few notes about the area: (the scale is reproduced, below the fold)

The two places (a township and a borough) are in Somerset County, New Jersey, about half way from Staten Island, NY to Allentown PA, near where I-78 and I-287 meet. Combined population is about 50,000. There are about 6 elementary schools, 3 middle and intermediate schools, and one high school. Larger Bridgewater has a median family income near $90k, while smaller Raritan’s is closer to $60k. Both towns are about 85% white, 10% Asian.

The scale starts near NYC, has lots of steps for education (BA+15, +30, +45, MA +15, +30, +45, +60, +75, PhD), but the advances are smaller amounts. The extra money for experience is very small in the first few years. After year 8, the increases become quite large ($3 – 4k, every year) until year 15.

This table is misformatted. To see it in a readable form, click this link, or check back in a few days. Sorry.

    The link is in the post. It goes to a readable chart.

    When I next update this one (no sooner than next Fall) I will reformat it.

    your numbers of schools are incorrect…

    7 elementary (K-4)
    2 intermediate (5-6)
    1 middle (7-8)
    1 high (9-12)
