    About Transylvania County Schools

    • About

      Transylvania County Schools is a consistently top-performing K-12 school system. But we are more than great scores. Our schools provide exceptional learning and 21st-century readiness through a nurturing and comprehensive approach that prepares children for lifelong success, responsibility, and citizenship in all their pursuits after graduation. We offer:

      • Smaller schools with low class sizes.
      • Competitive 8.5% local salary supplement for licensed educators.
      • Renowned Visual and Performing Arts programs at all levels.
      • Career and Technical Education pathways prepare students to succeed in high-demand fields from graphics to engineering, agriculture, and health sciences.

      We are pleased to celebrate the 50th anniversary of becoming the first NC school system to integrate.

      Our mission is to prepare students to become caring and productive citizens in an ever-changing society, through the shared responsibility of students, parents, educators, and the community.

      Our motto is "Teaching everyone takes everyone." We ask you to join us in committing to our highest values—that all children can learn; however they learn differently, and we must value and understand those differences, and that minds and hearts are the focus of education.

    • Salary, Compensation & Benefits

      All permanent teachers and other non-contract staff members in school-based positions that require a teaching certificate receive a local supplement equal to 8.5% of their base salary. The supplement is paid in 2 installments, one in the fall and one in the spring. The Board of Education has a plan to increase the local supplement to 10%. 

      Principals are paid on a state-adopted salary schedule based on their years of experience in education, years as a school administrator, and the number of state-funded teachers supervised.

      Assistant Principals, Teachers and other licensed staff (e.g. media specialists, psychologists, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, counselors and social workers) are paid on state-adopted salary schedules based on licensure, years of experience, and degree held.

      Transylvania County Schools provides a National Board Certification Cohort model for teachers seeking that certification. In addition, we have a process for licensed employees to receive support in defraying the costs associated with tuition expenses for advanced degrees or certifications. Funds from our Title II-Part A "Improving Teacher Quality" grant are used to provide nearly $30,000 per year to support this program that values and supports the professional growth of our employees.
