What are teacher career pathways in BCPSS?

Under the contract with the Baltimore Teachers Union, City Schools teachers can take control of their careers and grow within a system of career pathways and salary intervals.  The Joint Governing Panel (JGP) or “Teacher Career Pathways Team” administers this system under the direction of the Joint Oversight Committee (JOC).  The JOC is comprised of five BTU leaders and five district leaders.  

Please check out this presentation (and the accompanying video of our explanation of it) to learn more about what the pathway system is and how to navigate it.  This presentation was last updated in October of 2021.

You can also read more about the pathways on the JGP’s website.
