Should the PERS reduction subtraction applied in prior years to the District’s total Revenue Limit calculation be reduced or eliminated, 50% of the total dollars generated as a result of the reduction or elimination of the PERS reduction subtraction shall be available for an additional increase. For 2002-2003, all salary schedules contained in the Agreement shall be increased, effective July 1, 2002, by a percent equal to the percent increase to the District’s effective and funded Base Revenue Limit per Average Daily Attendance in 2002-2003 as compared to 2001-2002. The increase to the effective and funded BRL/ADA shall include cost of living increases, equalization aid, and/or any other permanent and on-going increase to the District’s BRL/ADA. Should the PERS reduction subtraction applied in prior years to the District’s total Revenue Limit calculation be reduced or eliminated, 50% of the total dollars generated as a result of the reduction or elimination of the PERS reduction subtraction shall be available for an additional increase.
14.02 ADA Increase
14.02 In addition if P2 AEA for 1999-2000 is above the projected ADA of 10,331 by 25 ADA or more the salary schedule shall be increased in accord with the following:
1. For the first 25 ADA above 10,331, the schedule shall be increased by .2336%.
2. For each 25 ADA beyond the first 25, the schedule shall be increased by .1168%.
14.03 An additional increase shall be added to the salary schedule for additional workdays, the “buy back” staff development days. This increase plus the additional workdays shall not apply to the Child Development Center.
a. In 1998-99 there shall be one additional workday, a “buy back” staff development day, which shall be implemented to meet the state requirements applying to that program. The 1998-99 salary schedule shall be increased by .55% in compensation for that additional day. This increase is reflected on Appendix B-1A.
b. In 1999-2000 there shall be two additional workdays beyond the one committed in 1998-99 for a total of three buy back staff development days. These additional days shall also be implemented to meet the state requirements applying to that program. The 1999-2000 salary schedule shall be increased by 1.1% in compensation for those two additional days. This increase is reflected on the 1999-2000 schedule, which is Appendix B-1B.
c. Buy back compensation may be eliminated from the salary schedule at the District’s option in the event of inadequate state funding of the staff development program or low district revenues connected with staff development days. If the compensation is eliminated, unit members shall not be required to work the additional days. In the event the District exercises this option in some subsequent year, the buy back compensation of 1.65%, plus additional salary schedule increases compounded on that amount shall be deducted from the schedule, unless the parties agree to a different deduction. Prior to exercising this option, the District shall notify AEA and attempt to discuss the matter.
d. If, in any year unit member absenteeism is higher on buy back staff development days than on regular instructional days, AEA and the District shall meet to brainstorm strategies for motivating all teachers to attend buy back staff development days.
14.04 Effective January 1, 1999 the sum of $1,304.76 shall be added to each cell of the salary schedule to cover the cost of dental, vision, and term life insurance benefits. The District shall cover the cost of dental, vision and life insurance to December 31, 1998. This increase is reflected on Appendix B-1A and Appendix C-1 for the Child Development Center.
14.05 The District shall allocate the necessary amount to pay for the costs of salary driven benefits (STRS.etc.) required when the dental, vision and term life costs are added to the salary schedule.

14.11 Educational Units
14.11.01 Quarter units are converted to semester units by multiplying the quarter units by 2/3.

14.11.02 The District shall provide each employee by December 1 of each school year a statement of salary classification and the number of units that the District has on file for him/her.
14.11.03 For reclassification in any given year, credits earned must be submitted by September 30. If a transcript is not available, the employee may submit a written statement of courses taken and credit earned. In this case, salary adjustments shall be contingent upon receipt of an official transcript on or before November 30 reflecting that the units were earned on or before September 30.
14.11.04 Credits submitted after September 30 shall be applicable for column movement in the following school year.
14.12 Teachers Without Full Credentials
Notwithstanding section 14.01, all non-credentialed teachers already employed by the District shall be frozen at their current step on the salary schedule until they obtain their credential. Newly hired non-credentialed teachers will be placed on Step 1 of the column that corresponds to their level of education but will be frozen at that step until they obtain their credential. As non-credentialed teachers complete educational units, they may move into the corresponding column of the schedule but at the same step. As soon as the teacher becomes fully credentialed, the teacher will receive from that time full credit for all applicable training and experience and will be placed at that time on the same step and column as if the teacher had been fully credentialed from the beginning of the teacher’s employment with the District.
