- Classroom teachers, defined as professional employees or temporary professional employees who provide direct instruction to students related to a specific subject or grade level.
- Nonteaching professionals, defined as professional employees or temporary professional employees who are education specialists or provide services and who is not a classroom teacher.
- Principals, defined as principals, assistant or vice principals, and directors of career & technical education. NOTE: Supervisors of special education (non-teaching professionals under Act 82) are considered principals for the purposes of Act 13.
