Teacher Baseline Salary Grant Webinar

Recruitment and Retention

The Fiscal Year 2023 budget includes $21.8 million for a new Teacher Baseline Salary Grant program designed to increase teacher salaries in many local education agencies (LEAs) across the state. Qualifying LEAs can apply for grant funds to boost their teacher salary levels to a baseline amount of $38,000. LEAs that currently employ teachers making between $25,000 and $38,000 per full-time equivalent (FTE) are eligible to apply. Under this grant opportunity, up to 70 percent of the additional funds to increase teacher salary levels to $38,000 would come from state grant funds. The remaining 30 percent and related benefit costs would come from local sources. Applications for the grant are due on Friday, July 15, 2022.
