Teacher Compensation Information

At Reid Traditional Schools, we treasure our teachers.  We offer premium benefits to our staff, including Arizona State Retirement and almost free PPO health coverage.  In addition to fully stocking paper and supplies, the Board of Directors reimburses teachers $100 per year for anything they spend on their classrooms, thus minimizing any out-of-pocket costs for teacher extras. We offer every teacher up to $100 for approved Professional Development costs. We also maintain staffing to ensure that teachers do not have lunchroom or recess duties during the school day, so they have productive time during the work day for planning and other tasks.

Unlike most district and charter schools, we maintain transparency in the faculty pay scale, and we continue to use a fair and easy to understand pay grid.  Since this scale was put in place prior to 2000, we have consistently honored our commitment to providing teachers raises as promised and expected. During the recession, we were forced to freeze the pay scale only one time, while many schools froze salaries for almost a decade.

AVERAGE TEACHER SALARIES AT RTS VALLEY ACADEMY
The average base salary of all teachers employed in the budget year 2023 is $55,163.
The average base salary of all teachers employed in the prior year 2022 was $53,937.
The increase in average teacher salary from the prior year 2022 was $1,226, which is a 2.3% increase.

These average salaries are affected by changes in personnel.  All returning teachers have received a 20% increase between FY2018 and FY2021.  The average salary does not include retirement, insurance, and other benefits.

Our attention to the well-being and satisfaction of our faculty has resulted in a very high teacher retention rate.  We honor and protect our teachers; they are our most important asset.
