Teacher pay

In June 2017, the School Board was presented with a study from the Arthur J. Gallagher & Company consulting firm on teacher salary. The report found the salaries of the county’s teachers fared well in comparison to some of Virginia’s highest-performing school divisions. The study also identified areas for improvement related to the selection of peer communities for salary comparisons and the amounts paid in stipends for work outside the classroom. The company was paid $32,325 for their work which consisted of a months-long review of teacher compensation by facilitating teacher and administrator focus groups and gathering external data.

In 2016-2017, salaries of county teachers with a bachelor’s degree ranged from $45,400 in the first year of teaching to $68,000 after 31 years. [3]

School attendance zones

As of December 2012, the school division is considering changing its attendance boundaries.[4]
