Salary Movement

Salary Movement Instructions - per the 2023-2024 Certified Master Contract
It is the responsibility of the professional educator to notify the Human Resource office by September 10 of earned movement on the salary schedule due to additional college/university hours or inservice credit. Both of the following items must be on file in the Human Resource office by September 10 for hours to be eligible for salary movement:
• The official transcript(s) verifying the completed college hours and/or inservice credit hours
• Salary Movement Intent form submitted to Human Resources (this is NOT the PDC transcript request form, see link to online form below)

Salary Movement Intent Form Instructions and Form

The form will accept responses for 2024-2025 until September 10. While the form is open, it can be submitted multiple times until September 10. 

Final Salary Movement allowances (column movement and/or step increases) are dependent upon the final negotiated agreement for the given contract year. See the FAQs section below for more info.

The Memorandum of Understanding memorializes an understanding between Derby Public Schools and the Derby Education Association. This document was the result of an understanding reached during the bargaining of the Master Contract for the 2013-2014 school year. It's understood that e-mails, transcripts or other communication received by the Human Resource Office would not constitute notification of request for movement: individuals must follow the procedures outlined above. You MUST submit BOTH the transcript/PDC transcript request AND the Salary Movement Intent Form.

Transcript Information
PDC Transcripts (Inservice Credit for 2024-2025 salary schedule movement):
 Approved and verified inservice credit that can be used for recertification will be counted for movement on the salary schedule at the rate of 20 inservice points = one semester hour. Inservice credits from districts other than Derby Public Schools will be recognized if such credits are consistent with the guidelines of Derby Public Schools Inservice Education Plan. Inservice credit transcript request for salary movement (Form 425 - PDC Transcript Request Form) must be submitted to Dara Hennessy, PDC Administrative Assistant, at the Administrative Center, 1550 E. Walnut Grove Rd. in Derby, no later than 10 contract days prior to September 10 (which is Monday, August 26, 2024). The PDC transcript request form is NOT the Salary Movement Intent form; the link for the Intent Form is above.

College Transcripts
Official college transcripts can be ordered from the university. You may have the transcript(s) sent directly to the Human Resource office (1550 E. Walnut Grove Rd., Derby KS 67037) or you may bring them to the HR office. If you bring them in person, please do not open the envelope. Transcripts faxed from colleges are not considered "official" because the watermark shows, labeling it as an unofficial copy. Some universities allow you to order electronic/secured, official transcripts. These are acceptable and encouraged, as delivery can be tracked. Please use as the recipient email. All transcripts must be received by September 10 to be eligible for salary movement.
