School District 156’s Underpaid Teachers

Teachers strikes harm the community… and the children.  Yesterday I presented data on the salaries of the teachers and administrators of School District 156.  Today I am posting their salaries with benefits package online because it is not fair.

The school teachers of Illinois School District 156 have declared they are underpaid and that they need more money.  I have found their salaries and I am posting them all for you to review.  It has been an interesting 24 hours and needless to say, my website, emails, and facebook have been a bit spicy.  Please decide for yourself if these salaries look like they are being underpaid. I have created easy to read tables for you to click on and read. I am also including my excel spread sheet where I pulled the data from as well as pasting the entire spreadsheet at the bottom of this post. With that, here we go:

The Administrators

Here are the D156 Administrators, their salaries, there benefits, and sick days.

I really do not have much to add about administration.  I am always critical of administration costs and I try to keep the cost down to around 10 percent.  However, you do need administration.  Just some quick calculations for you to think about.  There are 11 administration personnel listed who’s combined salary is $1,582,314.94.  The median average per administrator is $143,846.81.  As a percentage of salaries and benefits of administrators to teachers, administrator salaries and benefits are an amazing 10.71 percent.  Quite frankly you should be thanking the school board for such an amazingly low number.  This means more money is allocated to hiring teachers.

Teachers Under $50,000 in Total Compensation Per Year

Under 50k

Here are the D156 teachers who after salaries, benefits, make less than $50,000 per year. Sick days are listed. Click on the post to enlarge.

These are your 12 entry level teachers, 4 part time teachers, and Tom Eggert.  Are these reasonable starting salaries?  Are these reasonable salaries for part time employees?   I am curious if the nurse also teaches.  If she does I have no problem listing her as a “teacher”.  However, if she is a full time nurse shouldn’t she be listed under the administration?

Teachers Who Make Over $50,000 But Under $60,000 in Total Compensation Per Year

Under 60kv2

Here are the D156 teachers who after salaries, benefits, make more than $50,000 but less than $70,000 per year. Sick days are listed. Click on the post to enlarge.

There are 22 teachers who make more than $50,000 but less than $60,000 a year.  Are these salaries reasonable or are they unfair?  Should they be on strike?

Teachers Who Make Over $60,000 But Under $70,000 in Total Compensation Per Year

Under 70k

Here are the D156 teachers who after salaries, benefits, make more than $60,000 but less than $70,000 per year. Sick days are listed. Click on the post to enlarge.

There are 20 teachers who make more than $60,000 but less than $70,000 a year.  Are these salaries reasonable or are they unfair?  Should they be on strike?

Teachers Who Make Over $70,000 But Under $140,000 in Total Compensation Per Year

Over 70k

Here are the D156 teachers who after salaries, benefits, make more than $70,000 but less than $140,000 per year. Sick days are listed. Click on the post to enlarge.

There are 107 teachers who make more than $70,000 but less than $140,000 a year in School District 156.  Are these salaries reasonable or are they unfair?  Should they be on strike?

All of this data is public knowledge and available to anyone who wants to go dig for it.  I am simply putting it together for the taxpayers so they can make a judgement about the strike and see if the teachers are getting a fair contract.  Remember folks, this isn’t about the teachers… but the children.

Below is an HTML table of every administrator and teacher listed on Administrator and Teacher Data.  I apologize for the small font but I had to conform to WordPress.
