The banded system provides transparency and allows for promotion from a “Peck Teacher” designation to a “Peck Teacher Leader” designation. Peck seeks to give teachers an opportunity for promotion without moving to administration. Peck teachers have bands based on years of experience (1-5, 6-10, 11-15, 16-20, 21-25, 25-30, 31-35, 36-40, 41-45) that range from 25% to 75% of median salaries compared against benchmark schools. Teachers move within each band on a yearly basis and typically hover in the higher part of the range. Peck Teacher Leaders have similar experience-based bands that range from 50% to 90% of median salaries compared against benchmark schools.
