Fringe Benefits for Teachers in Public Schools, 1981-82. Part 3 of National Survey of Fringe Benefits in Public Schools. ERS Report.
Educational Research Service, Arlington, VA.
To help school boards and administrators assess their districts' fringe benefit packages for teachers, this fourth biennial survey gathered data from a national stratified random sample of 1,044 of the nation's 11,313 public school systems. Classified by district enrollment size, per-pupil expenditure, and geographic region, the data first are summarized in 25 tables and then are presented in detail for each reporting school district, organized alphabetically by state and district name. The variables covered include teacher leave provisions, medical and life insurance plans, professional liability insurance provisions, retirement plans, severance pay, tuition reimbursement, professional organization dues payment, and collective bargaining agreements. Also covered is the status of fringe benefits under each collective bargaining agreement. Among the survey's highlights are that over 80 percent of the districts provide sick leave, medical insurance, and group retirement plans; over 60 percent offer life and professional liability insurance and sabbatical leave; 42 percent provide severance pay; 28 percent give tuition reimbursements; and three-quarters have negotiated or written collective agreements with their teachers.
