Years of Full-time Experience: A year of Full-Time Experience is defined as serving 75% or more of the contractual work days in a single complete school year. Time worked that is less than 75% in a complete school year is not counted.
BA + Units: In addition to years of experience, salary placement is based on semester units beyond a Bachelor's degree. All quarter units are converted to semester units for placement (1.5 quarter units is equal to 1 semester unit).
FTE: Full-time equivalent. Salary is also determined by full or part time positions. Individuals working part-time will receive a prorated salary that reflects the number of hours / days worked. For example, if an individual works 0.5 FTE, or 50%, they receive 50% of a full-time salary.
