One Team, One Goal: Student Success!

Music Department

Supplemental Pay

Cobb County salary supplements are justified only on the basis of extended school day or extended school year. The choral teacher receiving a supplement is expected to spend a minimum average of 3 ½ hours per week beyond the hours required of a non-supplemented teacher in instructional activities (including performances) with students or in county-wide meetings and events. Middle school band and orchestra directors are required to spend a minimum of 7 ½ hours per week outside the school day at school with students or in county-wide meetings and events. High school directors are required to begin rehearsals at least one week prior to pre-planning and to spend the necessary time outside of school hours for the appropriate individual, ensemble, and full band preparations in addition to the weekly performance during football season. Most music directors feel they need to exceed the minimum in order to sufficiently complete the job.
