Arizona State Retirement

Because charter schools are not required to participate in the Arizona State Retirement System (ASRS), posted salary comparisons can be deceiving. Pointe Schools is one of the few charter systems to proudly match its employees’ 12.41% contribution to ASRS. That means a first-year certified teacher making $40,500 receives an additional $5,026.05 in ASRS contributions for an annual compensation package of $45,524.05. For a veteran, certified teacher with a master’s and 10 years of experience, their $50,500 salary receives an additional $6,267.05 in ASRS contributions, for a total annual compensation package of $56,767.05.
