    Can someone give me some assistance on what I'm sure is a silly question?

    I'm trying to figure out how to read the salary schedules for the local school districts in Orange County, CA.

    They all show vertical columns across the top showing BA, BA+15, BA+30, etc. I'm not sure where the credential fits in. Are the credential courses counted within the +15, +30 unit counts or is it assumed that you'll have a credential and the units are post credential units?

    :confused:

    BA alone is Bachleors degree, which I'm not sure if California considers 'credential'. In MD you must have a Bachelors and certification..and this kind of column set up assumes that you have a certificate in addition to the degrees and credits mentioned.

    BA+15 is a Bachelors degree with 15 credits towards a Masters....etc...

    Does that makes more sense?

    It's assumed you have the credential- how else would you be employed...so BA is employed,(credentialed) with a bachelors degree, The BA +15 is 15 additional credits (usually graduate or inservice) beyond that...and so on...:blush:

    In my area of so cal a BA is just that, and the credential is usually BA+30.

    I've actually had the same question myself. Most of the school districts schedules in my area start out at BA then go to BA+15, but there is one that starts at BA+30, so it's a bit confusing.

    I am confused by these darn schedules, too. I am in a credential program that works on terms, four 15 week terms per year for 10 "units" each. So when I finish my credential, I'll have 40 "term" units, but the schedules all list Quarter or Semester Units.

    I will just be happy to have a job when I get one, and will be "surprised" by my salary, I guess. Hahaha!
