As I was doing a little research to answer a question, I found something surprising. Jordan has a better salary schedule than most surrounding districts! Salt Lake District has always paid more. While steps have not been paid 3 of the last 5 years, including the 2013-14 year, and lanes have not been paid 2 of the last 5 years, including the 2013-14 year, teachers in Jordan are making a comparable salary to other Wasatch Front districts. I'm not trying to make us all feel better that we are not receiving what JEA sees as contractual step and lane payments, I was just surprised at how well we compare.
