ASA Salary Increase Information per House Bill 2663

In June, the ASA Board of Directors voted to allocate the entirety of the special money from House Bill 2663 to give an 8.1% increase to all full and part-time faculty and to instructional leaders.  A 6.6% raise to support staff was allocated from the inflationary increase provided by the State. 

House Bill 2663, approving an increase in education funding for FY19, requires all district and charter schools to post on their website the following information: 

Average Full-time Teacher Salary Increase


2017-2018 (FY18)

2018-2019 (FY19)

Average full-time base salary



Year-over-year dollar increase



Percent increase



Because of ASA’s small class size, low student to teacher ratio, and number of specialized teaching artists, the number of faculty we support reduces the overall percent increase we are able to provide. 

Note:  ASA provides stipends to faculty for extra duties, clubs, activities and leadership roles.   

For 2018-2019, the average TOTAL salary for our full-time faculty is $51,522.00
