► A salary for those beginning in the system, which will be at or above the minimum salary
established by state statute.
► Annual increments shall be added for each school year of successful experience up to the
limits provided by the schedule.

and implement the salary schedules adopted by the Board of Education. The superintendent may
consult with staff members in preparing the salary schedules.
