B.C. teachers' salaries, minima and maxima: July 1, 2001

Check this site for updates and revisions.

By Anne C. (Anny) Schaefer
Research Analyst, BCTF Research

This report provides starting and maximum salaries for B.C. teachers for the period of July 1, 2001 to June 30, 2002.

Bill 27, the Education Services Collective Agreement Act at www.legis.gov.bc.ca/37th2nd/3rd_read/gov27-3.htm, imposed a three-year settlement on B.C.’s teachers, increasing salary grids by 2.5% on each of July 1, 2001, 2002, and 2003. The imposed contract expires on June 30, 2004.


Table 1 describes Teacher Qualification Service salary categories.

Table 2 displays the minimum and maximum salaries for teachers in salary categories 3, 4, and 5, and the maximum of category 6 or 6M for each school district or local as of July 1, 2001. Rankings are also included for each category. Each mean is an unweighted average, complying with long-standing practice.

Tables 3a and 3b indicate the grid status of locals in amalgamated school districts. In the 9 amalgamated districts where locals have not amalgamated, 2 or 3 pre-amalgamation grids are retained. In 8 amalgamated districts, locals have also amalgamated; however, 2 grids are still in effect in half of these districts.

Table 4 sets out the number of steps to salary maximum at Category 5.


Teacher certification and salary categorization

Certification: The B.C. College of Teachers, established under the authority of the Teaching Profession Act, has the sole authority to issue teaching certificates.

The college issues two general certificates—a standard certificate and a professional certificate. In special circumstances the college may also issue a teaching licence, an instructor’s diploma, or a letter of permission.

Inquiries about certification should be addressed to: Registrar, British Columbia College of Teachers, #405-1385 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V6H 3V9. Telephone 604-731-8170. Web site: www.bcct.ca.

Salary Categorization (Table 1): Evaluation of a teacher’s academic and professional preparation is carried out by the Teacher Qualification Service, an agency operated jointly by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the B.C. School Trustees’ Association.

Inquiries regarding salary categorization should be directed to the Teacher Qualification Service, #106-1525 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V6J 1T5. Telephone 604-736-5484. Web site: www.tqs.bc.ca.

Salary schedules were originally established at the school district level by negotiation between the local school board and local teachers’ association, although since 1996, teachers’ salary increases have been negotiated provincially, and the most recent settlement was imposed. In some districts, local negotiations resulted in two variations of payment for Category 4 and two for Category 6, as well as recognition for salary purposes of certain types of additional training or experience. The local salary agreement must be examined to determine the criteria or conditions that apply in these cases.


Table 1: TEACHER QUALIFICATION SERVICE (TQS) SALARY CATEGORIES
