    • The only alternative program where salaries are set 5% of the index below the master salary schedule is TiR.  Prior to this all alternate programs had the 5% reduction.
    • The increase of 5% of the current index awarded upon completion of the alternative licensure program is now paid retro to the issue date on the license.  Before it was retro to the date the license was submitted to Payroll Business Services.
  • No ProComp PDU credit for required ELA PD:  As of June 2010, the district no longer provided a separate pre-approved district PDU for the required ELA classes. Instead, it worked within the school community regarding the implementation of lessons learned from coursework and combined study between educators and administration to serve as components of a school-based pre-approved PDU.

Cost-of-living adjustment increases (COLA) are effective 9/1 (start of the contract year).

COLA is not the only increase awarded each year. In 2014-2015, an additional 1.76% was given to employees on the traditional salary schedules in the form of steps/lanes/longevity. ProComp teachers received an equivalent amount in increases to ProComp incentives.

Opt In Window History

Teachers who entered DPS prior to Jan. 1,  2006 could choose not to opt-in to ProComp. In doing so, they retained their former pay structure, but could not take advantage of ProComp incentives. All teachers hired after Jan. 1, 2006 are automatically enrolled in ProComp. There was a total of  eight opt-in windows over six years made available to teachers (See the list below). No further opt-in periods scheduled for those who chose not to opt-in.

Opt In Windows Placed into ProComp
1. Nov. 11 – Dec. 31, 2005 2005-2006 contract year
2. Feb. 1 – March 31, 2006 2006-2007 contract year

ProComp Salary Plan

The ProComp salary plan was designed to ensure that DPS teachers and student services professionals did not lose any income by choosing to move from the traditional salary schedule into the new salary system. Although educators who join ProComp chose to forego step and lane increases, as well as longevity, they gained the opportunity to earn money through ProComp’s four main components.

 

 

Community Forum – The ProComp Community Forum was a bi-monthly meeting of community members interested in public schools and educational excellence in Denver. Launched in August 2001, the forum’s leadership was anchored by members of the Denver Rotary Club, League of Women Voters and other community leaders. The ProComp Community Forum no longer meets.

CTAC – Community Team Assistance Center of Boston. CTAC was commissioned to conduct a study of the Pay for Performance Pilot program. Part of the findings in its initial report were the basis for expanding the teacher compensation plan to include more than student achievement. Its final report on the Pilot, Catalyst for Change, issued in January 2004 showed a link between student growth and teachers who set the highest level of Objectives.

Pay For Performance Pilot – The Denver Pay for Performance Pilot Program. It was a four year collaborative and groundbreaking effort between DPS and DCTA which investigated the interrelated issues of student achievement, teaching processes and teacher compensation.

Phase In – The process of gradually implementing the Professional Compensation System for Teachers based on the district’s capacity to support it. Under the ProComp Agreement, the system will be partially implemented in the 2005-2006 school year and fully implemented in the 2006-2007 school year.
