ARE HOOSIER SCHOOLS MEETING MINIMUM TEACHER SALARY REQUIREMENTS?

ISTA began the Red For Ed movement in 2018, and with the advocacy of educators, parents, students and public school advocates, we achieved significant investments in public education and a commitment to reach professional teacher salaries. ISTA is now working to ensure the significant investments in K – 12 education get to where the funding was intended – into classrooms and to attract and retain quality educators.

This map is a tool to see trends where schools are able, or unable, to reach teacher salary goals. This map reflects data from ratified contracts from the 2020 – 21 through the 2022 – 23 contract years, where available. The data will be updated weekly.

Color Coding

Green indicates districts that have reached a $40,000 minimum starting salary. Yellow indicates districts where the minimum starting salary is less than $40,000.
