Where can I see the Montana teacher pay scale?
Teacher salaries are determined by local school districts through locally developed bargaining procedures.
Salary information may be available from the Montana Education Association, http://www.mea-mft.org/
Located at: 1232 East Sixth Avenue, Helena, Montana 59601
Contact: (406) 442-4250.
We contacted the MEA/MFT in February 2005 and according to the Teacher's union, the average teacher's salary for 2004 was $37,184; for 2005, $38,485. The beginning teacher's salary for Class 1 schools with the exception of the Havre District: 2004: $24,032; 2005: $25,260.
The figures are gathered from school districts belonging to the union. About 90% of the school districts in Montana belong to MEA/MFT.
