Covenant Day School is pleased to be able to offer our teachers salaries that are competitive with both public and private schools. Covenant Day provides a number of other benefits in which faculty and staff can choose to participate including medical, dental and vision coverage, short and long term disability, life insurance, and accidental death and dismemberment insurance.
We also offer an optional flexible benefits plan for qualified pre-tax medical/dental expenses and a pre-tax retirement 403(b)(7) savings plan. In addition, for qualifying faculty and staff, tuition remission and educational assistance for approved graduate programs are available. Additionally, all full-time teachers and selected part-time teachers are provided a laptop computer, email account, and support.
In addition to competitive compensation and benefits, the school provides licensure benefits to full-time faculty. Covenant Day School is approved by the state of North Carolina as an Initial Licensure Program school. This enables CDS to guide teachers who have Standard Professional I NC state licensure to earn their Professional Standard Professional II NC state licenses. This process provides mentoring, evaluation, and guidance. Once a teacher obtains a Standard Professional II NC teaching license, the license is renewable every five years. Teachers coming from out of state may be able to get Standard Professional I licenses based on reciprocity OR might qualify for a continuing license if they have taught for three or more years in a public school out of state.
