Invest in Our Educators - Make Teachers Whole

On Friday, March 28, PENC sent a letter to all NC House and Senate members, the Governor’s office and the State Board of Education Members and Advisors regarding our teacher compensation proposal. To read a copy of the letter, please click here.

In addition to the letter, PENC is working with other organizations that represent teachers, students, administrators and school boards to advance a compensation proposal that would include reinstating teachers on the salary schedule where they would have been if there had been no freeze and reinstating supplements for master’s and advanced degrees, making NC regionally competitive in the 2014-15 school year.  These recommendations will be presented to the NC Educator Effectiveness and Compensation Task Force on Monday, March 31.

The 25%: Tenure and Four Year Contracts FAQ

This fall there has been much discussion about how and when counties will select the honored 25% as required by the legislature in the state budget bill, Appropriations Act of 2013, S 402. We know that educators have many questions and that school systems are struggling to pin down a fair process they can use to select the 25%. You will find answers to a variety of questions that members have been asking on our FAQ Page.

While we do not agree with the recent legislation surrounding the selection of 25%, we have been asked to offer feedback and ideas. To accurately share our members thoughts and concerns with those making these very difficult decisions, we ask you to take our short survey, by clicking HERE.
