Rewards and Benefits

“The educators in CPS are really passionate about their work. It is an honor to work here. I have learned so much about myself and my craft. I know that the people I work with will be lifelong friends and mentors.”

The rewards of working for Cambridge Public Schools go beyond salary and benefits. We respect the time and resources of our teaching faculty, offering stipended service opportunities, up to $1,500 in available annual tuition reimbursements, and up to $450 per year in reimbursements for out of pocket classroom expenses.

CPS salaries continue to be among the highest in the region. Cambridge was one of the first cities in the nation to ensure that all employees regardless of position are paid a living wage. Starting salaries for novice teachers begin at over $50,000.

Our extensive employee benefits include health and dental insurance, paid holidays and a generous sick leave allowance based on full-time or part-time work schedules of 20 hours or more per week.
