    I am looking for help creating a staff pay scale that is based on years of experience and pay raises based on training. Can anyone help? Thank you

    Hi Michelle,
    I am happy to hear you are creating a salary scale that is based on various criteria. It is recommended that a salary scale be based on role (e.g., lead teacher, teacher, assistant teacher), general education (e.g., AA, BA, MA), specialized training (coursework in ece or child development), years of experience, and credentials (e.g., nationally or state recognized such as an infant-toddler credential). Years ago the McCormick Center developed a resource that included information on how to link your salary scale to a career ladder: While it is dated, the information may be useful for you. Good luck!
