DCTA To Unveil Compensation Proposal

“Vision for a New Compensation System” will provide a new framework for compensation system.


At Monday’s scheduled Compensation Bargaining Session, representatives from the Denver Classroom Teachers Association (DCTA) will unveil DCTA’s “Vision for a New Compensation System” to DPS representatives and the public. The new vision will provide a framework for a teacher compensation system that ensures predictability and growth potential for educators while strengthening schools, retaining talented teachers and recruiting the best educators to DPS.


The unveiling follows months of discussion between the two groups on how to re-create a compensation system to meet the needs of students, teachers and the district.


“It’s very difficult, if not impossible, to create the type of academic environment we all want to provide under the limitations of the current ProComp System,” said Henry Roman, president of DCTA. “We are hamstrung by a program that provides little incentive for teachers to seek a career with DPS and even fewer reasons for exceptional teachers to stay in Denver. Our vision resolves these critical issues and ensures a brighter future for Denver teachers and students.”


This is the second-to-last scheduled Compensation Bargaining session before the current ProComp Agreement expires in March. As always, the public is encouraged to attend all sessions.


Be sure to attend Monday’s Compensation Bargaining Session scheduled from 5 to 9 p.m. at 1617 S. Acoma St. in Denver.
