Faculty Salary Systems in Independent Schools: A Sequel.
Littleford, John C.
"Faculty Salary Systems in Independent Schools"(1983) was a study of trends and patterns found in nine independent schools during l982-83. The present document is a follow-up report, based on additional information gathered from seven salary seminars held for representatives of independent schools throughout the United States during 1983-84. Most of the information gathered from these seminars reinforces and supports the conclusions of the original report, but the patterns are clearer and more prevalent than one could presume on the basis of the original nine schools. The discussion is divided into the following sections: (1) patterns and directions, (2) the structure of school salary systems, (3) performance pay, (4) extracurricular pay, (5) teacher involvement in decision making, and (6) faculty satisfaction with salary systems. A summary follows, delineating two contrasting patterns in faculty salaries at independent schools: toward highly structured salaries on one hand, and toward performance pay on the other. (TE)
