Salaries and Supplements Schedules
The Osceola County School Board and Superintendent Dr. Debra Pace recognize Osceola County employees for their time and talents in inspiring our students every day and commit to provide employees a leading compensation package among Central Florida school districts.
Advanced Degree Supplement Law Change
The following describes a revision in Section 1012.22(1)(c)3, Florida Statutes [e.g., Senate Bill 736 (2011)]:
"A District school board may not use advanced degrees in setting a salary for instructional personnel or school administrators hired on or after July 1, 2011, unless the advanced degree is held in the individual's area of certification and is only a salary supplement."
This means that instructional personnel and school administrators with a district start date of July 1, 2011, or after must have a degree major posted on their transcript which matches a subject listed on their Florida certificate, in order to qualify for an advanced degree salary supplement at the master, specialist or doctorate levels.
Instructional personnel and school administrators with a continuous employment date prior to July 1, 2011, in a position that falls under one of these classifications, are not affected by this law change. An advanced degree in any area will be recognized for salary purposes for these employees, now or in the future, as long as there is no break in service with the District.
Instructional personnel or school administrators will fall under the mandates of the new law if they:
- transfer to a professional support staff position within the District and return to an instructional or school administrative position on or after July 1, 2011, or
- resign, retire, or have a termination date for any reason, and then return to an instructional or school administrative position within the District on or after July 1, 2011.
Instructional personnel or school administrators moving to one of these positions in another Florida school district, on or after July 1, 2011, will fall under the mandates of the new law in the other district.
Professional Support Staff Salary Schedules
Professional Support Staff positions with the School District of Osceola County include a wide variety of jobs. Because of this, the pay rates for these positions vary a great deal. Verifiable work experience and the specific job determine your rate of pay.
