It depends on the employee’s classification. For instance, classified employees at certain points receive what is known as “step” increases. These are increases that employees receive for so many years of service.
Certified employees also receive step increase. However because of the additional education requirements for their positions, they also receive increases for achieving certain educational milestones. For instance when a teacher earns their master’s degree, they receive an increase.
Administrative employees do not receive step increases. They do receive compensation for certain educational milestones, but this is not included in their base salary.
All employees usually receive what is known as COLA or Cost of Living Adjustment increases on an annual basis. However, all employees recently agreed to a one-year zero percent increase to the base salary. In other words no COLA. This equates to a more than $2 million cost savings for the Olentangy Local Schools District.
