    Comments on average salary calculation:

    The average salary is calculated solely on a teacher’s base salary, not including stipends, performance contracts, or other payouts. The definition of a teacher is established in the Classroom Site Fund Performance Plan eligibility requirements. A Kyrene teacher is defined as an individual who is compensated on a teacher’s salary schedule, holds a valid teacher certification from Arizona Department of Education, and teaches at least 50% of the time.

    *For the 2018-19 school year, those teachers are also eligible for performance pay up to $3,100.
