The yearly Teacher Survey report is produced during the Summer, followed by the Non-Teaching Jobs report in the Fall-Winter, and finally the Extracurricular Activities Supplements report immediately after the New Year (January). Reports are in PDF format via email. The Non-Teaching report consists of three parts: separate files for Large, Medium, and Small sized school systems.
Salary figures from 53 School systems

Past participation has occurred solely by word-of-mouth, school systems have never been solicited by advertisement.
Teacher Salary Survey (Annual Study #1)
Non-Teaching Personnel Survey (#2)
Extracurricular Activity Supplements(#3)
The next series of slides describe the Teacher Salary Survey process and report (with samples of the various types of salary figure comparisons).
Furlough or Reduction Days
Furlough day pay was subtracted from the schedules of systems not producing a reduction-day schedule and having furlough days.
Information is presented on the number of furlough or reduced days the various systems have identified. Means are circled.
The next series of slides describe the Non-Teaching Personnel Salary Survey data collection process and report (with samples of the various types of salary figure comparisons) and describing the effort made to obtain accurate salary information).
Jobs are presented first by: (a) System-wide workers (Central Office, Department Staff, and other system coverage) and (b) Local school building positions. Each of the jobs listed on this slide has an accompanying definition which has been derived by looking at work typical to that job…usually from organizational charts and system job descriptions, but also relevant to the school system’s size.
Organizational charts played a major role in creating the types of jobs and departmental organizations to which are used to match with others having the same type of work…recognizing that similar jobs are not titled the same from system to system.
Sample County Schools
In this example, the sample county has the assistant superintendent position having a maximum potential salary of $102,241. It calls for a certified based individual to work for 230 days (which we consider an annual job) and that person is a division or department director…which was not specified. No additional comments were provided.
Highest Potential Salary
Highest pay with maximum experience & degree
The Chief Technology Officer, in this example, has a high potential salary of $102,241 and is not required to have certification. That school system calls the title “Director of Instructional Technology”. This may be a small system position since larger systems have persons with less of an instructional orientation.
Salary figures should be reported as the highest potential salary a job holder might make this year. That is, the Top end of the highest scale, say Doctorate Level, with maximum experience and degree or training, not just current top pay.
Other information to consider
Notice that these Non-Teaching jobs containing maximum potential salaries are ranked from systems paying the most to systems paying the least. Some of the reasons for higher pay might include: certified job (Y/N), days worked, local title, or various job uniqueness…items which have been circled on the slide.
We report hourly maximum salaries for only three jobs: Parapro, Bus Driver, and Food Service Worker. Any system that pays hourly wages for other jobs is encouraged to convert to an annual salary…or we have made that conversion.
Parapro (class aide)
Food Service Worker
Salary figures include daily rates for those with: a degree plus certificate, only a degree, and for non-degree holders.
The next series of slides describe the Extracurricular Activity Salary Supplement Survey process and report (with samples of the various types of salary figure comparisons).
73 Extracurricular Activities
(54 Athletic, 19 Non-Athletic)
Minimum and Maximum Supplements
School systems are ranked based on the highest supplements paid (the top end of the supplement scale). This sheet also indicates the number of middle and high schools each district has.
Salary supplement tables were produced for 54 athletic activities/functions (including cheerleading) and 19 non-athletic activities (e.g., drama coach, band director).
Reported salary supplements were not supposed to include Extended Year Pay.
Athletic supplements include head and assistant coaches, and include cheerleading as an athletic event.
Two questions were posed as part of the data collection process:

Information: Particularly the
Non-Teaching Personnel Salary Report
Sample County Schools
Five figures are requested for each reported job. Two of them are drop-down menus (certification…yes/no choices and days worked…several choices).
Matching your positions with those included in the salary survey template…with accompanying job descriptions…is very important. Some of your jobs will be a poor fit with the descriptions and should not be forced into a surveyed position, and you may have other jobs not being surveyed at all.
Good or Poor Matches
Some of our listing of jobs vary substantially among school systems (e.g., technology jobs), while others are pretty typical (e.g., custodian, director of transportation).
Match your job based on our description and on what other systems have included in past reports for specific jobs. Some of your jobs may be a better match to those with a different title.
Review Metro RESA list of jobs; note that job descriptions contain information on Lines of Reporting (to whom the job-holder reports). Do not provide salary information based on Title alone.
When you review the annual reports, consider any matches that are questionable…compared with other systems… and improve the matching process the following year.
If several levels of a particular job exist, such as Secretary I and II, indicate highest salary across these multiple salary scales.
Remember, we are asking for the highest potential salary for the job which we have defined…even if your system has several levels for that job…identify the top level and top pay rate.
Job is certified-based(drop down Yes/No)
This means that this job-holder requires a certificate.
Drop down choices: 12 Months, 220, 210, 205, 200, 195, 190 & below.
There are five drop-down choices. Choose the one closest to the number of actual days worked by the job-holder. If actual days worked is 225 or above, that represents a 12 month job.
If a different name from the template, but your job fits our definition.
Some jobs have quite a number of different titles across school districts. Be sure to match up with our definition as opposed to the job title (e.g., various technology positions have unique local titles).
