Teacher Pay | Troy University

Teacher Pay

PAY SCALES

ACCESS teacher pay will be based on students completing a minimum of 30% of the graded items (dropboxes, quizzes, discussions) included in one of the term average calculations in the master course and each unique section. The rate of pay will continue to be $150 per half credit for WBI courses and $75 per half credit for VCI receiving students. Teachers will be paid by their support center only for students meeting the required minimum performance. There will no longer be a four half-credit minimum per section.

  • For regular WBI ACCESS courses: Teacher pay will be determined using data gathered by the ALSDE based upon the student’s completion of 30% of the graded items (dropboxes, quizzes, discussions) as described in the previous paragraph.
  • For transfer students: Support centers will identify the beginning and ending units that each transfer student is required to complete for each half-credit of the section.
  • For Credit Recovery (CR) and Credit Advancement (CA) courses: Teacher pay will be determined using data gathered by the ALSDE based upon completion of 30% of the units in CR or CA courses.
  • For VCI ACCESS courses: VCI payments (to teacher and to sending system) will be determined by verification from the support center and VCI teacher of each student’s completion of 30% of the course by half credit.

Teachers will be paid for teaching students from their own district. However, they will not be paid for teaching students in their own school. Teachers will be paid (if payment is earned) only for the number of half credits they are teaching. There are no guaranteed minimums.

*All final deposit dates are dependent upon the support center receiving a signed copy of the Completed grades after a course end date via postal service (no email or fax will be accepted). Grades must show that students have been marked complete and must be signed by the teacher in order for pay to be processed. 

DEPOSIT AMOUNTS

All deposits other than the final deposit for a course shall be based on an estimate of how many students will complete the course based on work submitted so far. The support center will strive to divide the estimated final amount equally across all deposits. This may cause some deposits to be higher or lower than expected. The final deposit shall be based on the actual number of students who submit the minimum 30% of graded items for each term enrolled. This may cause the final deposit to be higher or lower than previous deposits.

All ACCESS teachers shall be considered Adjunct Part Time instructors unless otherwise noted by the support center.
