Teachers re-hired to Denver Public Schools

Re-Hires 

All teachers who leave the DCTA bargaining unit will enter ProComp when they return.  For a view of what it's like to work under ProComp, click on our ProComp video.

This section covers two situations:  Teachers who leave the District and teachers who leave the DCTA bargaining unit, but stay with the District.

If you were in ProComp previously, left the district, and returned in ProComp, you retain some of your ProComp elements as follows:  

  • Professional Development Units:  Teachers who were non-renewed, but rehired within 90 days of the prior contract year retain their banked PDUs. If more than 90 days have passed since the end of the last contract year when you were in ProComp, your PDU bank is no longer available.  If you voluntarily resign, your PDU bank is no longer available as of your resignation date.  More...
  • Tuition and Student Loan Reimbursement:  Rehired teachers can access the remainder of the $4,000 lifetime maximum Tuition and Student Loan Reimbursement amount. ($1,000 in year maximum).  More Tuition...  More Loans...
