On Thursday, the Evansville Teachers Association wrapped up two days of meetings discussing details of their tentative contract with the EVSC.
Here is a summary of the tentative agreement that was sent to us from the Evansville Teachers Association. Voting will take place Sept. 2nd - 4th.


  • Leaves and benefits structures remain essentially unchanged.

  • For 2014-15, all teachers receive a 2% increase on base salary. The Extra Duties Schedule is also increased by 2%. The resulting salary range is $35,081-63,540.

  • Future base salary increases will be determined by performance pay.

  • Performance pay is awarded based on a point system, compliant with the criteria in state statute.

  • Each year, point value is determined by dividing the total dollar amount bargained by the total points earned corporation-wide. It is expected that each point will worth between $200-300 for 2014-15.

  • Teachers in high-need schools (year 4 of Priority status as defined by IDOE or 80% or higher free and reduced lunch status) may earn additional performance pay.

    • After years 1 and 2, teachers are paid a stipend equivalent to two points.

    • After year 3, teachers’ base salary is increased by the equivalent of two points plus the stipend amounts earned in years 1 and 2.

  • Several examples are provided in the chart below, assuming a consistent $250 point value.

Teacher 1: Earns E/HE for 3 years

Teacher 2: Earns E/HE and PD for 3 years

Teacher 3: Earns E/HE and PD and works at a high-need school for 3 years
