CTU and CPS have come to agreement on the distribution of this veteran pay. Once final pay schedules are calculated and carefully proofread, we will post them here. Below is the preliminary teachers salary table, but note that teachers at or above 14 years of service will see extra pay above what’s reflected in the table below.
