A Study of Certificated Salaries and Fringe Benefits of California Community College Districts, 1990-91.
Kern Community Coll. District, Bakersfield, CA.
In January 1991, a study was conducted to assess the fringe benefit programs of community college districts in California, and to determine the total dollar amounts paid to certified employees. Questionnaires requesting fringe benefits and salary information for 1990-91 were mailed to all 71 districts in the state. Rankings of salaries at three designated salary levels were added to the fringe benefits rankings to show total remuneration to certified employees. These totals were ranked and compared to statewide averages for 1989-90. Study findings included the following: (1) 13 districts had a benefits plan allowing employees a choice of options for the expenditure of a specific amount of money allocated for fringe benefits; (2) 59 districts provided health insurance coverage for employees and dependents, and 65 districts had some form of dental coverage; (3) 61 districts reported paying life insurance premiums as part of their fringe benefits package, while 7 districts mandated such coverage; (4) employee assistance programs (e.g., psychological services, and drug dependency and crisis counseling) were provided by 10 districts; and (5) from 1989-90 to 1990-91, total remuneration per certified employee increased by 8.17% for employees within the salary ranking of "minimum salary with a masters degree," by 7.22% for "maximum salary without a doctorate," and by 7.22% for "maximum salary with a doctorate." Tables provide district expenditure per certified employee for selected fringe benefits; and the total fringe benefits paid, total average salaries paid, and total remuneration paid by district, including the statewide rankings for each category.
