Wish later statistics were available, but the information is still interesting.
Besides the average salaries, the percentage of school operating budgets that go for teachers’ salaries is provided.
The highest average teacher salary is found in Crystal Lake High School District 155.
Nothing is even close to its $89,382.
Other high school districts come next.
I’ve always thought that a result of the 1973 Resource Equalizer State Aid to Education formula having been written by high school teacher Gene Hoffman. I think the formula had a built-in advantage for high school districts that grade school districts did not figure out in time to have an impact.
Of interest to teachers will probably be the low percentage of many school districts’ operating budgets going for teacher salaries.
The state average is 38%.
The highest percentages the Riley Grade School District and the Alden-Hebron Unit School Distrit–Riley over 60% and Alden-Hebron just under.
All the others are lower than 50%, with Algonquin’s District 300 being at a stunning low 26%!
