On July 9, 2013, the Governing Board directed staff to begin the work of resolving salary compression that exists between current employees and newly hired employees. The plan recognizes the dedication of teachers who have shown commitment to TUSD through their years of service in TUSD and will ensure that current TUSD teachers with equal years of experience are not compensated less than new hires with non-TUSD experience. See the Compression Plan pages for more information and updates.
