DCSD’s Employee Council has been working to review our licensed compensation system, in partnership with a Denver metro area salary study, via a consultant, in order to provide input and recommendations toward a new salary schedule. This process began as a result of a resolution from the DCSD Board of Education in December 2018, that directed our Superintendent to create a compensation structure that 1) is predictable for all employee groups; 2) acknowledges experience/longevity, knowledge and job performance; 3) is easily comparable to neighboring school districts; 4) is developed after the opportunity for ample feedback and input from employees, regularly and effectively communicated to all staff; 5) progressively moves toward regionally-competitive pay for all employees; and 6) reflects research and best practices for ensuring equity and employee satisfaction.

In alignment with #4 above (ample feedback and input from employees) -- we are ready to begin input sessions where licensed staff can share with us what is important to them in a new compensation system.

If you are unable to attend a feedback session in person -- licensed staff will also have the opportunity to provide feedback via an online survey. The survey link will be emailed to all licensed staff on Monday, October 28.

If you have any questions regarding the upcoming input sessions for licensed staff, please email info.human_resources@dcsdk12.org
