Districts in Colorado have been some of the first to wade into pay-for-performance, or merit pay, salary structures, which pay teachers more based on student achievement. In one district, the top pay jumped from $68,000 to around $90,000. But most districts in the state still follow standard salary schedules, paying teachers according to their years of service and level of education. Under either model, it can pay to have a master's degree in education. In one Colorado Springs district, teachers with a master's degree make an average of around $4,000 more per year than those without one, according to the Colorado Department of Education.

The state is currently experience shortages of teachers qualified to teach English, math, music, and special education.
