Come Teach for Tangi!

Looking to make a move? Now is a great time to consider it! Tangischools is offering a one-time $15,000 recruitment stipend for New Teachers to TPSS.

The School Board gave final approval for the district to offer a one time $15,000 recruitment stipend for NEW teachers to Tangipahoa Parish School System.

New Teachers to the Tangipahoa Parish who receive the recruitment bonus will be placed at specific schools based on their certification with the goal of creating a more diverse workplace at every school. This stipend will be paid over two years, which would provide an additional $625 per month for 24 months ($7,500 more annually) on top of the teacher salary schedule. Teachers transferring from other districts to Tangipahoa will have their numbers of years teaching credited to them on the salary schedule.

New teachers in TANGI with no teaching experience start at $47,300 plus the $15,000 recruitment stipend. New teachers coming into TANGI with five years experience with a bachelors' degree start at $49,636 plus the $15,000 recruitment stipend. New teachers coming into TANGI with 10 years experience with a bachelor's degree start at $52,016 plus the $15,000 recruitment stipend.

The Superintendent and Board will continue to utilize all available revenues to ensure that the very best teachers are in the classroom. The new 2023-2024 Salary Schedule will be released in July 2023 and may reflect higher teacher salaries. Our goal is to continue to offer competitive salaries for all our employees.
