Methods of Scheduling Salaries of Principals. Second Edition.
Educational Research Service, Arlington, VA.
Using the data for elementary, junior high, and senior high principals collected in the National Survey of Salaries and Wages in Public Schools, 1982-83, this report provides an analysis of the various methods used by school systems to structure salary schedules for principals, the various provisions of these schedules, and the levels of dollar amounts for key points on the schedules. Of the 1,120 school systems responding to the national survey, 347 provided schedule documents utilized in this analysis. Primarily, this report provides a system-by-system listing showing, where possible, both minimum and maximum scheduled salaries for principals and considers salary differentials for academic preparation, school size, number of days on duty, relationship to teachers' schedule, responsibility ratios, and other factors. Nine summary tables and three graphs show: average scheduled salaries and salary ranges for principals by academic preparation levels and by relationship to teachers' schedules; the mean dollar amounts of annual increments; and methods of establishing salary differentials by school size and other factors. Examples of various types of salary schedules are provided. An appendix provides guidelines and procedures from state and national levels for designing salary schedules for principals. (PB)
