A Study of Benefits and Selected Salaries of California Community College Districts.
Kern Community Coll. District, Bakersfield, CA.
In 1984, a study was conducted to assess the overall fringe benefit programs of California's 70 community college districts and to determine the total dollar amounts paid to certificated employees. A questionnaire requesting fringe benefit and salary information was mailed in January to the 70 districts, providing data which, with the 1983-84 salary schedules of the districts, were used to determine compensation. Averages were calculated for fringe benefits, salary, and total compensation at three salary levels (minimum salary with a masters degree, maximum salary without a doctorate, and maximum salary with a doctorate) and compared with figures for Spring 1983. Study findings included the following: (1) 16 districts used a "cafeteria plan," allowing the employee a choice of options for the expenditure of a specific amount of money set aside for fringe benefits; (2) 56 districts provided health insurance for employees and their dependents; (3) 36 districts offered long-term disability or income protection; (4) 63 districts provided dental insurance, 55 life insurance, and 31 vision insurance; (5) 2 districts offered tax-sheltered annuities; and (6) total compensation increased an average of 3.51% between 1983 and 1984. The study report includes tables showing dollar amounts for certificated employee fringe benefits by district; and rankings of districts according to fringe benefits and minimum salary with masters degree, without doctorate, and with doctorate.
