Constructing Salary Schedules for Principals and Assistant Principals. Administrative Information Report.
National Association of Secondary School Principals, Reston, VA.
This publication describes various approaches used by school districts to determine salary schedules for principals and vice-principals and presents sample salary schedules and criteria illustrating eight different approaches. The information presented here was derived from data gathered during the 1974-75 National Survey of Salaries and Wages in Public Schools conducted by Educational Research Service. The eight approaches described are generally variations on five methods of setting principals' salary schedules: a separate salary schedule, unrelated to any other salary in the district; a salary schedule based on a percentage of the district superintendent's salary; a salary schedule based on a percentage of the salary of senior high school principals in the district; a salary schedule based on a percentage of some other reference figure (such as the average of superintendents' salaries in neighboring districts); and salaries set independently for each principal, either through individual negotiations or based on a subjective decision by the superintendent or school board.
