Teacher Pay – Fort Lee, NJ

March 30, 2008 pm31 9:25 pm

Fort Lee is a town of about 35,000 in Bergen County, New Jersey, at the western side of the GW Bridge. It’s about two-thirds white, one-third east Asian (half of those of Korean ancestry), and median family income is about $72K. Fort Lee has four elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school, with a total of about 3,500 students.

The Fort Lee Salary schedule has too many columns to be included here: BA, BA+10, BA+20, MA, MA+10, MA+20, MA+30, MA+40, MA+50, and MA+60. The bolded columns are included, below.

Starting salary is $45k, with increases of about $7-800 per year for the first few years. Years 5-12 include increases of around $2k, and the largest increases occur after year 12. Moving across columns is generally worth about $1k per/column, with the exception of a bigger kick for the masters.

Maximum ($102k) is not reached until year 18 (still quicker than NYC by 5 years, but slow compared with other suburbs in this region).

Share links, or e-mail me, and I will post more salary schedules. The ones on this site? Some I stumbled on; some readers sent in. Send more, I’ll post more (and more people will send more, and more people will read them, and more people ….)

As I find them, I will post teacher pay scales, concentrating on communities not so far from NYC.

For the New York City Department of Education salary schedule, click here.

    I am interested in moving to Fort Lee and was wondering if I could transfer my years of experience to Bergen County?
