News Release - Historic data for average teacher salary corrected in May 2017

April 27, 2018

Historic data for average teacher salary corrected in May 2017

DENVER - A year ago, the Colorado Department of Education discovered an omission in the calculation of average salary for teachers for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 school years. The error was corrected and average teacher salaries for those years were updated on the CDE website in May 2017. 

Staff salary information can be found on this page. 

The Colorado Department of Education does not compile national rankings for teacher salaries, but several outside entities use the department's data to compile their own comparisons of average salaries and total compensation for teachers. 

Average pay for teachers in Colorado is:

  • $51,204 in 2015-16,
  • $51,810 in 2016-17, and
  • $52,728 in 2017-18.


CDE apologies for the error.
