York County School Division Strategic Plan

Goal 3: Recruitment & Retention


Objective: Compensation


  • The compensation package for licensed staff will move into the top three of the Hampton Roads comparator market of nine school divisions by July 1, 2017 and will remain in the top three in subsequent years.
  • Fiscal Year Target
    FY14 Rank of 5 or better
    FY15 Rank of 4 or better
    FY16 Rank of 4 or better
    FY17 Rank of 3 or better
  • The Superintendent will revise or develop by July 1, 2013 the standard operating procedures for the periodic review and maintenance of a competitive, non-licensed compensation package.

    • Revised the standard operating procedures for assessing all non-licensed positions over a multi-year period to determine whether positions are placed on the appropriate pay grade to provide internal equity and external competitiveness. The position reviews do not assess or address the impact of multiple years in which steps were not awarded.

    • Completed the position review for non-licensed positions whose payroll constitutes one-third of payroll expenses for non-licensed positions. All positions on Grades 3 - 12 plus Para-Educators and Health Service Professionals were reviewed. Examples of positions reviewed include Bus Driver Assistant, Custodian, and Office Clerk.

    • Implemented reclassification of three positions, effective December 1, 2013.

  • A compensation study of the teacher salary schedule will be conducted by an external consultant or consulting group for consideration by the School Board during the FY15 budget process.
