Alternative Schools and Teacher Salaries

Do alternative school teachers in Georgia have higher pay than regular school teachers?

As with any other state, Georgia teachers’ salaries are based on a salary schedule that takes into account a teacher’s years of service and educational level. Salaries are identical for all teachers at the same spot on the salary schedule, regardless of field assignments or teaching areas. Take a look at the Georgia Department of Education salary schedule.
