In 2022-2023, the District will recognize experience for established teachers, meaning that teachers who are new to our district, need not start over on the salary schedule.
A generous benefits package, including Health, Vision, Dental, and Life Insurance.  The District contributes the maximum allowable for health insurance premiums under Michigan’s “hard cap” law.  The District pays 100% of the premium for vision, dental, and a $75,000 life insurance policy.   The District also pays a generous “in lieu of”  the amount for teachers not in need of full family health insurance coverage.
