I am sure this is a question that is often asked, but I'm apparently using the wrong keywords on search engines.

I'm currently teaching at an international school in Indonesia that uses the CIE curriculum. I plan to return to the US in two years and teach in a public school. For anyone who knows or has been in a similar position, will this experience be regarded as qualified experience for steps on salary schedules in most US public school districts or not?

Thanks for any information you can offer.

I worked in NYC, so I can't speak for other public school systems, but I was credited my experience working at private language schools (2 years in Japan, and 6 or 7 in Montreal and New York City) on the Salary Scale.

In California if you change districts your in-state, post-certification experience may only partially count. For example, a teacher with 20 years experience may only get 5 years credit on the salary scale, and have to start at the bottom with seniority.

(I am getting my information from teachers who post on the atozteacherstuff and teachers.net forums.)

Depends on the district. I was given credit for overseas work.
