[EFFECTIVE UNTIL JULY 1, 2020] (1) Effective July 1, 2015, all existing instructional staff shall be placed in a cohort on the career ladder starting with the second cell on the residency/professional compensation rung that corresponds with the next higher allocation amount than is currently received by the district, based on the experience and education index pursuant to section 33-1004A, Idaho Code, as applied in fiscal year 2015. For each year between July 1, 2015, and June 30, 2019, those instructional staff will move one (1) cell on the career ladder for each year they are employed by a district and meet the applicable performance criteria for the compensation rung and implementation year, unless such movement would result in the district receiving a lesser allocation than the district would have received if the instructional staff would have moved based on the experience and education index as applied in fiscal year 2015, for such instructional staff the district salary apportionment calculation shall use the amount that would have been applied based on the experience and education index. Applicable performance criteria used for determining movement on the career ladder will be based on the previous year’s performance for the applicable number of years.
(2)  Effective July 1, 2016, all existing pupil service staff shall be placed in a cohort on the career ladder starting with the second cell on the residency/professional compensation rung or the next higher allocation amount than is currently received by the district, or based on the experience and education index pursuant to section 33-1004A, Idaho Code, as applied in fiscal year 2016, whichever is higher. For individuals holding a pupil personnel services certificate with an occupational therapist or physical therapist endorsement, all experience shall be counted toward the experience calculation from the first year in which the individual held an applicable license from the bureau of occupational licenses and performed occupational therapy or physical therapy services while employed by a school district, a charter school or an accredited private or parochial school. For each year between July 1, 2016, and June 30, 2019, those pupil service staff will move one (1) cell on the career ladder for each year they are employed by a district and meet the applicable performance criteria for the compensation rung and implementation year, unless such movement would result in the district receiving a lesser allocation than the district would have received if the pupil service staff would have moved based on the experience and education index as applied in fiscal year 2016. For such pupil service staff, the district salary apportionment calculation shall use the amount that would have been applied based on the experience and education index. Applicable performance criteria used for determining movement on the career ladder will be based on the previous year’s performance for the applicable number of years.
(3)  Instructional staff and pupil service staff who are in their first year of holding a certificate shall be placed in the first cell of the residency compensation rung and shall move one (1) cell on the residency compensation rung for each year they hold a certificate thereafter, for up to three (3) years, at which point they will remain in the third cell of the residency rung until they earn a professional endorsement.
(4)  Instructional staff new to teaching in Idaho and pupil service staff new to working in an Idaho public school district or charter school who hold a certificate from a state other than Idaho and who are approved to teach in Idaho will be placed into the cohort of instructional staff on the career ladder table equivalent to their experience and education pursuant to section 33-1004A, Idaho Code, as applied in fiscal year 2015 for instructional staff and 2016 for pupil service staff. For individuals holding an Idaho pupil personnel services certificate with an occupational therapist or physical therapist endorsement, all experience shall be counted toward the experience calculation from the first year in which the individual held an applicable license from the bureau of occupational licenses and performed occupational therapy or physical therapy services while employed by a school district, a charter school or an accredited private or parochial school.
(5)  In addition to the allocation amount specified for the applicable cell on the career ladder, school districts shall receive an additional allocation amount for career technical education instructional staff holding an occupational specialist certificate in the area for which they are teaching in the amount of three thousand dollars ($3,000).
(6)  In addition to the allocation amount specified for the applicable cell on the career ladder, school districts shall receive an additional allocation amount for instructional staff and pupil service staff holding a professional endorsement who have acquired additional education and meet the professional compensation rung performance criteria. In determining the additional education allocation amount, only credits and degrees earned based upon a transcript on file with the teacher certification office of the state department of education, earned at an institution of higher education accredited by a body recognized by the state board of education or credits earned through an internship or other work experience approved by the state board of education, shall be credited toward the education allocation. All credits and degrees earned must be in a relevant pedagogy or content area as determined by the state department of education. Education allocation amounts are not cumulative.
