The Teton County School District #1 salary schedule for the 2017-2018 school year is based upon the evidence based model funding provided by the Wyoming Legislature. This finance structure was originally adopted in 2006 after a comprehensive recalibration of K-12 public education funding. The Wyoming model provides for both equitable and adequate distribution of resources for the purpose of raising student achievement. “An Evidence-Based Approach to Recalibrating Wyoming’s Block Grant School Funding Formula” can be found at http://legisweb.state.wy.us.
Salary calculations are determined by a comparison of statewide averages and adjusted by years of experience and level of education. A regional cost adjustment (RCA) is then applied to all personnel categories. The RCA adjustment provides for a significant increase to salary amounts compared to statewide averages due to the cost of living in Teton County. The RCA increased from 132% to 138% or a 6% increase in the RCA for Fiscal Year 2017 and 2018. The Wyoming Legislature is currently conducting a recalibration of Wyoming's Block Grant School Funding. We will not know the results of those discussions and the future of the RCA until late 2017.
