Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):

The estimated cost to the State under the Public School Support Program (PSSP) for the $5,005 across the board increase in the basic teacher salary schedule is $114,749,328 for fiscal year 2024-25 and annually thereafter. This cost estimate includes the estimated increases in Step 1 for professional educator salaries ($90,637,113), Step 3 for fixed charges ($7,980,541), Step 5 for professional student support salaries ($6,214,108), Step 6 for substitute costs ($2,421,281), and retirement ($7,496,285). Note that county boards of education will incur additional costs for personnel employed in excess of funded, personnel employed in positions not eligible for state aid funding, personnel employed using other funding sources such as state or federal grants, and extended employment terms for professional personnel. Such county level costs are not included in the above estimates. The West Virginia Consolidated Public Retirement Board (CPRB) should also be consulted to obtain the additional cost to the State due to the impact of the proposed salary increases on the unfunded retirement liability for the Teachers' Retirement System (TRS). This cost estimate does not assume the passage of other legislation. If other changes are made to the PSSP, it could result in an increased cost for the pay increases.
