§ 1864.6. Administration of salary schedule
The provisions of this act shall not be construed as authorizing any decrease in the salary paid or any reduction in the attained rank of any member of the faculty of any State College at the effective date of this act.
For the college year 1963-1964, each person employed as a member of the faculty of a State College, who has satisfactorily completed a probationary period of three years, shall receive a salary in the lowest step in the salary range prescribed for his classification in this act, which will give him an increase over his 1962-1963 salary of not less than the first increment in the range for the college year 1963-1964. Each person employed as a member of the faculty of a State College, who has not completed the three year probationary period, shall receive a salary increase which will bring his salary to the minimum step of the salary range prescribed for his classification or to the next step in the salary range above his 1962-1963 salary.
For the college year 1964-1965 and for each college year thereafter, each person who has satisfactorily completed the probationary period of three years shall receive one (1) increment to the next step in the minimum salary range prescribed for his classification, provided his salary during the previous college year was below the fifth step of the range. If such person's salary during the previous college year was at either the fifth step or the sixth step of the minimum salary range prescribed for his classification, he may receive one (1) increment to the next step in the range according to criteria established by the Board of Presidents and Superintendent of Public Instruction1 in co-operation with the Association of Pennsylvania State College Faculties.
For the college year 1964-1965 and for each college year thereafter, each person who has not completed the three year probationary period may receive one (1) increment to the next step in the minimum salary range prescribed for his classification if such increment is recommended by the president of the college and approved by the Board of Trustees and the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
No salary increases in excess of those either mandated or authorized by this act may be granted without the approval of the Governor's office. If the Executive Board approves any salary steps above the maximum salary steps prescribed in this act, the board shall determine the conditions upon which increments to such salary steps shall or may be granted.
Classifications of any employe enumerated in the foregoing salary schedule and the qualifications of such employe must be approved by the Superintendent of Public Instruction to entitle any employe to the benefits of this act. Not more than thirty per centum of the total number of the faculty of any State College shall be approved for classification as professor, except where a member of the faculty has met the requirements of a professorship and has been an associate professor for at least three years when recommended by the president of the college and approved by the board of trustees. Of the thirty per centum, three per centum of the faculty may be granted full professorships on the basis of other qualifications than the doctorate when recommended by the president of the college and approved by the board of trustees.
Any person appointed as a faculty member of a State College after the approval of this amending act shall receive a salary at that step in the salary range of his approved classification which is recommended by the president of the college and approved by the board of trustees and the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall be vested with the sole and final authority in interpreting the provisions of this act pertaining to the classification of any person covered thereby, according to the policies developed by the board of presidents of State Colleges.
