NC State Salary Schedules Released as NC Legislature Reaches Budget Compromise

by Beth Burns, M.S., CCC-SLP, Lead Speech Language Pathologist

The NC House and Senate announced Monday afternoon that they have developed a compromise budget.  Both sides will vote this week and send to the governor.  Because the House and Senate have veto-proof majorities, this budget will in all likelihood become reality.

The charts attached are the state salary schedules for Bachelor’s level teachers.  Local supplements are not included.  For speech-language pathologists and audiologists to calculate their new salaries:

  • Add 5 to the years of experience shown (0=5, 5=10, 10=15, 15=20, 20=25)
  • Add 7.5% to the top salary if you have 25+ years of experience
  • Add 10% for your Master’s Degree
  • Add $126 if you have an Advanced Degree
  • Add another $126 if you have a PhD
  • Add local supplement (differs in every school district)

The calculation is a monthly salary.  Multiply by 10 if you are a 10-month employee.

There is some language regarding yearly bonuses for teachers (we assume SLPs and audiologists) with over 25 years of experience.
