Post: Out of state experience

    Hello. I apologize if this question has been asked before.
    I am an out-of-state teacher looking to move to PA. I have
    obtained my PA license.

    I have heard from teacher friends in PA that most districts
    only grant 1-2 steps to out-of-state teachers, no matter
    their experience.

    My question is: is this negotiable?

    I know multiple teachers in my state who negotiated higher
    step placements at hiring.

    I'm just looking to begin teaching in PA at step 6 or 7,
    since I have 6 years of experience.

    Thanks for your help.
