Arkansas Teacher Careers, Certification & Salaries

The Arkansas Department of Education has jurisdiction over 239 school districts educating 465,000 students. While it is smaller than many state education departments the ADE faces the same issues with its 239 constituent agencies as any large agency: fiscal difficulties, test score deficiencies (or successes), the challenges of a diversifying student population, and teacher shortages for the STEM academic categories. The state agency does not have an incentive program for science and math teachers, but some districts offer incentives to teachers with credentials in those fields.

Arkansas Teacher Salaries

Data compiled in a recent survey shows that Arkansas ranks 32nd among the fifty states in the Union and the District of Columbia in teacher salaries. A 2009 survey shows that the average salary for public school teachers in Arkansas is $47,475.1 The school district in Little Rock has seven pay ranges for its teachers, which are graduated based on academic achievement. The first range is for a bachelor's degree, second range for a bachelor's degree plus twelve additional semester hours, fourth range for a master's degree, and so forth.
