Teacher pay: A case study

A Medford middle school teacher with 13 years of teaching experience and a master's degree submitted pay stubs from November 2013 under the old contract and January 2014 under the new contract.

Here's how the new contract, implemented by the district on Dec. 20, 2013, without the union's approval, affects his salary.

District officials caution that there are many variables in individuals' pay, even for those with the same experience.

Net increase per day before taxes = $4.56

Divided by 8-hour day = 57 cents per hour increase under new contract

$4.56 daily increase on a $330.84 daily salary = 1.38 percent raise

*The district's most recent proposal is for 190 days.
