(d) Each level shall include titles of classes of teaching positions which are appropriate for the various categories of teaching positions which should properly be placed in the same level. To the extent appropriate, titles should be of a broad, general nature (i.e., “Classroom Teacher”, “Librarian", etc.). § 1601.10 Compensation of teaching

positions. (a) Basis. Rates of basic compensation for teaching positions will be fixed by the Secretaries of the military departments in relation to rates of basic compensation for similar positions in the continental United States, exclusive of Alaska and Hawaii, but no such rate shall exceed the highest rate of basic compensation for similar positions of a comparable level of duties and responsibilities under the municipal government of the District of Columbia.

(b) Schedules. A single, coordinated, uniform compensation schedule will be jointly developed and adopted, and from time to time adjusted, as appropriate, by the three military departments, which will:

(1) List the various classes and levels of teaching positions;

(2) For each level, establish and prescribe on a school year basis the basic compensation step rates. At each level the schedule will also provide, in each step rate, for an appropriate additional increment for those teachers who possess a Master's degree and may provide a further increment for those who have completed a higher level of academic preparation.

(3) Prescribe a flat daily rate for substitute teachers and summer school teachers.

(4) Provide for appropriate additional compensation for certain extracurricular activities normally associated with elementary and secondary school programs.

(c) Rules for fixing compensation(1) New appointments. Each new appointment of teachers who meet mininum qualifications requirements will be made at the first numerical step rate for the level to which the employee is assigned, plus any additional increment to which he would be entitled in accordance with paragraphs (b) (2) of this section. Those appointed who do not meet minimum qualifications standards will be appointed to special step rates which will be prescribed in the compensation schedules.

(2) Reemployments, transfers, reassignments and demotions other than for cause. Upon reemployment, transfer, reassignment or demotion other than for cause pay may be fixed at any step rate for the level in which employed which does not exceed the highest previous rate received in Federal employment. However, if the highest previous rate falls between two scheduled service step rates of the new level pay may be fixed at the higher step rate. In those cases where former Federal employment was under a different pay schedule the highest pre vious rate shall be determined as 10/12's of the salary received under such other schedule if such salary was on an annual basis. If the reemployment, transfer on reassignment occurs in the school following satisfactory completion of a school year, the teacher may be granted the step increase earned in the previous year.

(3) Eligibility for additional pay in. crement upon completing advanced educational preparation. A teacher who completes advanced educational preparation for which an additional pay increment is provided shall be assigned to the higher rate effective on the first day of the first pay period following the receipt of documentary evidence that the work has been completed.

(4) Promotions between levels. A teacher who is promoted to a higher level shall be assigned to the lowest numerical step on the schedule for his new level which will give him an immediate increase in school year salary rate at least equal to a service step increment in the level from which promoted.

(5) Demotions for cause. Teachers who are demoted for cause shall be assigned to a step rate in the level to which demoted which does not exceed the numerical step held in the level from which they were demoted.

(6) Initial conversion from classification Act Schedule to the Teacher Schedule. (i) Upon initial conversion a teacher will be converted to a level in the new compensation schedule which is prescribed as equivalent to the Classification Act grade from which converted, The step to which the teacher is converted in the new level shall be the numerical step equivalent to the step held under the Classification Act.
