Some important notes and explanations:

For 2021-22, returning classroom teachers at NPA are receiving a 3% increase over their 2020-21 base salaries. When there are changes in teaching staff where a teacher with less experience replaces a teacher with more experience, the resulting overall average increase can be below the standard salary increase of 3%.
