  • Median teacher average salary is $55,600 up 1.7 percent from 2022-2023.
  • The majority, 90 percent, pay shortage stipends to teachers in at least one identified shortage area.

Regarding pay increase:

  • Of responding districts, 13 percent did not give a pay increase for the 2023-2024 school year, while 3 percent reported a one-time payment.  

All participants were given an opportunity to provide suggestions or comments about improving the online survey. The suggestions and comments will be reviewed and factored into improvements for next year. Thank you for the feedback!
