FAQs:

Q: I’ve completed 15 credits beyond my bachelor’s degree and was on lane C (BA+13); on the new schedule I’m on BA18. Does this mean that I now have 18 credits and only need to complete 18 more to change lanes?

A: No. You must complete a total of 36 credits beyond your bachelor’s degree to move to the next lane; if you already completed 15 semester hours of university credit, you’ll need to complete 21 semester hours (or the equivalent lane change-approved professional development) to move lanes.

 

Q: I’ve completed 30 semester hours of university credit since my master’s degree and was on lane H (MA+26); on the new schedule I’m on lane MA18. Does this mean that I lost 12 credits?

A: No. You retain all credits you completed. You only need 6 more university semester hours (or the equivalent lane change-approved professional development) to move lanes.

 

Q: I am currently on lane E (BA+39) and have completed 42 university semester hours of credit. I do not plan to complete a master’s degree but did plan to apply for a lane change to lane F (BA+52) when I complete an additional 10 credits. What should I do?

A: If you complete the additional credits equivalent to 52 semester hours beyond your bachelor’s degree before December 31, 2020, you may apply for a lane change to MA. If you do not complete them by December 31, 2020, you will have to earn a master’s degree to move to the MA lane.

 

Q: So how many professional development hours does it take now to change lanes or advance salary?

A: You must complete 18 semester hours of university credits, or 270 lane change-approved professional development hours, to apply for a lane change.

 

Q: I thought I needed 195 hours of professional development to be eligible for a lane change. With the classes I took in the spring, I have enough credits now. Can I do that before August?

A: No. The 2019-20 salary schedule required 13 university semester hours, or 195 professional development hours, to be eligible for a lane change. The restructured salary schedule requires 18 semester hours of credit, or 270 professional development hours, to be eligible for a lane change.

 

Q: How do I know how many credits I have?

A: If you completed the credit bank set-up process in the spring of 2020, you may go to Employee Records and look in your FILES near the top right-hand corner of the screen; open STEP 2. https://psdschools.tedk12.com/records

 

Q: How can I apply for a lane change with classes that ended after 12/31/2019?

A: Per the negotiated agreement, no lane changes will be processed or effective for classes completed by August 31, 2020, until January 1, 2021. We will send information about the new online lane change application process in fall, 2020. Lane changes for classes completed after August 31, 2020, will be processed and effective in the following fiscal year per the Employee Agreement in effect at that time.
