Teacher Salary Grids: Kootenay BC Region School Districts

Kootenay

The following teacher salary grids for Kootenay school districts are effective May 2019. Figures are based on BCPSEA data.

A teacher’s salary category is assigned by the Teacher Qualification Service (TQS). It is based on TQS’ evaluation of a teacher’s training; professional and academic qualifications.

Within districts, there may be remote and rural communities. Please note that employees working in these communities are eligible to receive a remote and rural allowance, which is both an adjustment to the salary grid and an annual allowance of approximately $2,519 per FTE.  Teachers on call (TOCs) are not eligible to receive this allowance.
