Revised Expenditure Summary
Teacher Market/Compression: In FY 2020, the teacher scale will be adjusted to move towards 92% of
the market presented by VASS. This includes – Albemarle, Culpeper, Frederick, Loudoun, Prince
William, Spotsylvania, Stafford, and Warren Counties. The charts below show how the market
adjustments address salary compression in the teacher scale.

Other Changes
We love our people. The workforce compensation strategy extends beyond the salary adjustments
described in the previous bullets. There will also be revisions to policies:

o Individual and Family Sick Leave Bank: This coverage will allow employees to access sick
leave to care for a spouse, child or parent. The sick leave bank policy allows employees to
access sick leave for up to 55 days.

o Paid Time Off: Revision to sick and personal leave policies for 10 and 11-month certified staff.
For example, teachers are typically granted 10 sick days and three personal leave days each
year. Staff will have access to 13 days each year to be used for sick or personal leave based
on individual needs beginning with your SY19-20 accruals.

o Monetary Loyalty Appreciation: There will be financial recognition for years of service. No
more pins and watches. The amounts will depend on funding availability at the end of the
year and will require approval by the school board each year.

Other Changes
Health Insurance Increase: For the past several years, employee premium rates have remained
stagnant. In FY 2020 (begins July 1, 2019), employees will see a 7.5% increase in premiums. The
increases range from $1.00 to $14.50 bi-weekly. Employees will see an 8.7% decrease in dental
premiums with the upcoming plan year.

Employees are encouraged to review all plan options in detail during the upcoming open enrollment
period to select the plan that works best for you. This is the one time per year that you can make
changes to your elections without a qualifying life event. The plan designs will remain the same.

Other Budget Increases: The remaining funds will be used to lease buses, hire required school
counselors, our contribution for Mountain Vista Governor’s School, and other required/restricted
costs such as health benefits, security officers, cash for the ESCO project to make facility
improvements in our school buildings, a regional special education program, etc.

*The original proposed budget included staffing rations based on the state SOQ requirements proposed by the governor. Because the final state budget
allows FCPS1 to meet these staffing rations without filling all the original positions. Any frozen positions will be filled if required to meet mandated levels.

Future Considerations for Compensation:

 Achieve 100% market for all positions. Reviewing annually for variances.

 Implement policy and practice of providing an annual step and cost of


living adjustment for all staff. This will keep FCPS1 competitive in the
marketplace.

 Consider a retirement health care credit and other non-traditional


benefits that make FCPS1 a preferred place to work, live, and learn.
