The KCTCS Board of Regents approves the current year KCTCS Salary Schedule, which includes salary ranges for regular full-time faculty and staff. Funding for the salary schedule must be approved by the KCTCS Board of Regents within the KCTCS annual budget. The Kentucky Postsecondary Education Improvement Act of 1997 as amended authorizes the KCTCS Board of Regents to “…adopt bylaws, rules, and regulations for the government of its members, officers, agents, and employees, and enforce obedience to such rules…” The KCTCS Board of Regents Resolution Endorsing the Development of a KCTCS Compensation and Classification Program, adopted December 6, 2002, states that KCTCS seeks to compensate employees according to their effort and contribution; establish competitive wages and benefits; treat employees with respect, consideration, and courtesy; and develop sound and equitable pay systems that reflect best market practices. Additionally, KCTCS seeks to maintain a compensation program that creates a harmonious working relationship among all employees by providing an exciting, challenging, and rewarding workplace and experience.
