COLAs and Compensation

COLAs and Compensation

In 2022, we fought hard and secured a financial agreement of a full COLA plus steps and lanes, contingent on school funding determined by the legislature.
But now, DPS is backtracking on our agreement, claiming lack of funds despite monumental increases to schools per pupil funding due to our advocacy.
All of us have been feeling the impacts of the rising cost of living from our groceries, to gas prices to housing. Our healthcare benefits costs continue to soar, and the district continues to pass that burden on to our educators, exacerbating our challenges. Educators need and deserve a full COLA now, more than ever.
Stand with us for compensation and COLAs by participating in the actions below!
