The Denver Public Schools/Denver Classroom Teachers Association
        Professional Compensation System for Teachers

                    Presented to the Board of Education
                               April 6, 2006

ProComp: The Policy Premise

Teacher compensation, which is a
   school district’s single largest
   expenditure, should be linked
  directly and in multiple ways to
 improved student learning, which
      is the district’s intended
       organiztional outcome.
   ProComp Aligns Teacher
Compensation with District Goals
• Replaces a system of capped
  entitlements with a system of
  uncapped earned increases
• Allows teachers to design
  their own professional pay
  package based on what they
  do and where they want ot go
  with their career
• Requires $25 million in new

ProComp is Built on A Foundation
     of Guiding Principles
• ProComp will be negotiated, and therefore owned, by DPS and
• All bargaining unit positions have the same opportunity
• Cost of living adjustments will be made equally to both systems
• The system will not be enacted unless it is fully funded
• The single salary schedule will be maintained until the last
  bargaining unit member on it retires
• There will be no quotas
• Current teachers will have the right to opt in over the next seven
