Average Teacher Salary

The strength, talent, and happiness of a child’s teacher makes all the difference for their future!

Therefore, Challenge Charter School takes great care of its team with competitive compensation packages focused on the long term stability of the CCS team with retirement and low out of pocket medical and preventative health care costs.

“In accordance with A.R.S. §15-189.05, as added by Laws 2018, Ch. 285, §3, a school’s budget shall include the prominent display of the average salary of all teachers employed by the school for the budget and prior years, and the increase in the average salary of all teachers employed by the school for the budget year reported in dollars and percentage. Schools must also prominently post this information on their website home page separately from its budget. The Law does not provide a definition of a teacher.”

CCS is a true community of educators and learners and therefore everyone who instructs children at CCS is defined as a “teacher” for these purposes to include interventionists, cooperative teachers, specialists, and special area teachers.

Compensation packages include the following benefits:
Arizona State Retirement 
Health Insurance
Dental Insurance
%50,000 Life Insurance policy
Vision Insurance
Merit and bonus (301) pay eligibility
High quality, frequent, and meaningful professional development and planning time

This extensive benefit package significantly increases the average total compensation.
