My wife and I are at the top of the pay scale, so we have been "maxed out" the past few years and figured it would be the same here on out. With no more steps we stood to receive market scale adjustments which, when we do get one seem to be in the 1-3% range at most. The pay scale for next year was released and not only will we receive the 4% market scale adjustment for next year, but the school board added an additional step at the top for those who are currently at the top step. I was somewhat surprised by that part. The end result is we each move up about $5,900.
