8. What is the Market Rate Salary Schedule?

The Market Rate Salary Schedule does not have Grades and Steps. The rates for the positions on this salary schedule are based off of the Market Rate for individual positions. SPALC and the District are committed to reviewing the rates for these positions annually to ensure competitive pay for these positions. The District uses software from the Economic Research Institute (ERI), which utilizes data from the US Department of Labor (US DOL) to determine market rates based upon geographic location, industry, and organization size. The District also uses data from other school districts, as reported to the Florida Department of Education (FL DOE).
