Lateral Moves - Certified Staff

Horizontal increments on the Teacher’s Salary Schedule will be implemented at the beginning of the contract year, August 10 and again on January 1. To qualify for such an increment the credits must have been completed by September 1 or January 1 and official transcripts submitted to the District no later than October 13 or February 15.


The pay increases will be retroactive to the beginning of the contract year and to the beginning of the new calendar year respectively. The amount of retroactive pay that begins for the new calendar year will be prorated according to the number of days that remain from the beginning of the new calendar year to the last duty day of the contract year. Please review Article 32 as to what will be counted towards credit for a lateral move.  Please remember that official transcripts are needed for lateral moves. HR Directors will begin processing laterals the end of September/beginning of October. Teachers who receive credit for a lateral will be notified via email in October of their new placement on the salary schedule. Go to the district web-site for the lateral form which is under Human Resources.

Please make sure that you have checked with your HR director on any classes that you have taken outside of college credit or SVVSD staff development to determine whether they would be considered for credit.

Electronic Transcripts (eScripts) are only accepted if the original link to the eScript is sent to HR personnel. Please send eScripts to Josie Vigil at vigil_josephena@svvsd.org
