CMS is currently operating under a continuing resolution voted on and put into place effective July 1, 2015, by the NC General Assembly.  It states that public school employees paid on the teacher salary schedule or school-based administrator salary schedule and other employees shall not move up on salary schedules or receive automatic step increases, annual, performance, merit, or other increments until authorized by the General Assembly.   

The only exception is:  the monthly salary on the "A" salary schedule that corresponds to zero to four years of experience shall be $3,500 rather than $3,300.  This only relates to Bachelor level personnel and does not affect the Masters or NBPTS certified personnel with 0-4 years of experience.  Personnel on step 4 in 2014-15 are increased to $3,500.
