This survey provides current data for school directors and administrators to examine the policies of compensation for professional personnel in the suburban Philadelphia area. The report contains three sections: a) salaries of teachers, b) salaries of instructional specialists, and c) salaries of administrative and supervisory personnel. Mean salaries of classroom teachers in the reporting districts of the Philadelphia area range from $10,750 to $8,575 depending on the district and the qualifications of the teacher. Approximately 25 percent of all teachers hold advanced degrees, and the median salary of all teachers in the sample is $9,710. Salaries of administrators and directors range from $9,928 to $35,000 depending on the position. The problems and confusions of the wage-price freeze have created tensions between school districts and their employees. Further study of the situation will hopefully lead to a sound compensation program that will effectively attract and maintain an adequate and qualified staff of competent personnel. (Related document SP 005 648 is a salary study by the Philadelphia Suburban School Study Council of seven districts in the Philadelphia area.) (MJM)
