Here's a Look at Teacher Salaries in School District 304

Geneva School District 304 teacher salaries show that 360 of 404 full-time teachers earned $50,000 or more base salary in 2011.

When Brian Burns addressed the School Board on Monday night, he joked that he could hardly wait to read his salary number the next day on Geneva Patch.

A reader—Donna Mead—did something like that by adding a screen shot of a spreadsheet showing teachers' compensation to .

I deleted the screen shot because it did not contain headers to show the context of the numbers or name a source. Mead later added a comment that included the Illinois State Board of Education website as well as instructions on how to find the numbers by clicking on "Administrator and Teacher Salary and Benefits."

The top Geneva teachers' salaries are present here in the chart below.

It includes only the top 322 full-time teacher salaries in Geneva because that's the limit that the Patch content management system allows. I removed employee names from the list, because the purpose of this article is to provide data, not point fingers at individuals' earnings. 

Teachers in Geneva schools have a "step and lane" compensation. That means a teacher's salary increases according to the number of years served as well as the level of education the teacher achieves. A step-and-lane spreadsheet is provided on the 2009 Geneva Education Association Contract located on the District 304 website. A PDF of the contract is included with this article.

Administrators and teachers have not said what aspects of compensation are on the bargaining table.

Of the 404 full-time teachers' salaries listed in the ISBE chart, 360 earned a base salary of $50,000 or more in 2011. The breakdown is:

  • $100,000 or more — 47
  • $90,000-$99,999 — 30
  • $80,000-$89,999 — 39
  • $70,000-$79,999 — 87
  • $60,000-$69,999 — 72
  • $50,000-$59,999 — 85
  • $40,000-$49,999 — 36
  • $30,000-$39,999 — 8

The district administration is top heavy and bloated. Let's make sure to view this as a separate issue, however. The message to the school board is firstly, in their contract negotiations, no raises for the teachers for the next three years. THEN, they need to address cutting the administration costs, starting with the guy at the top. Fiscal responsibility is the school board's priority right now.

When Mr. Grosso ran for school board years ago, he made an observation that he thought the administration was on the top heavy side. Now that Mr. Grosso has been on the school board for a few terms, we have yet to find out if he was correct, wrong, or swayed differently about his observation. Or are we to assume that "it is what it is."

My question is ..... do all teachers complete individualized weekly lesson plans? Or do they use the same ones year after year? While I was an aide in my child's classroom I recall making copies of the same material to be taught for THE FOLLOWING YEAR. I don't think a whole lot of planning went into this on a weekly basis.

Sorry I don't have time to respond to all of you. Let me just say that when you all include benefits and then proclaim that the starting salary for a first year geneva teacher is $70,000 I think that's misleading. Bob does a good job in saying that those higher numbers include benefits but not all of you are as clear. I think using the higher number, without clarification, is meant to sensatinalize teacher pay. And I don't think that's fair. Sandra, if you get elected to the school board then you can go after the "step and lane" model which we currently use for compensating our educators. Until then it's the model in place so that's the basis of negotiations. Thier not going to throw it out the window at this point in the negotiations. So your just gonna have to get your head around it for now. Rice

John, any other information you have about the current state of negotiations would be great - please share
