Beginning teacher pay

Teacher base pay is budgeted and funded by the state legislature and outlined in the Washington Teacher Salary Allocation Schedule. Actual salaries by district are determined by local collective bargaining agreements. This results in different total compensation paid to full-time beginning teachers by each district.

Current teacher salary schedules in Washington typically determine pay by the number of years of service, highest degree earned, and number of credits completed beyond highest degree.
