Educational Research Service, Arlington, VA.
This report provides data on hourly wage rates and annual salaries paid in 1987-88 by responding public school systems to personnel employed in 10 selected support positions. The questionnaire was mailed to 1,728 of the approximately 11,307 public school systems in the United States enrolling 300 or more pupils. Of the 169 school systems with enrollments of 25,000 or more, 132 (78 percent) responded; the total number of responses was 979 (57 percent). Data show lowest, highest, and average hourly wage rates being paid to teacher aides, building custodians, cafeteria workers, and school bus drivers. Also shown are the annual salaries for support personnel such as secretaries/stenographers, accounting and payroll clerks, clerk-typists, and library clerks. Twenty-three summary tables show salary distributions, means, medians, and ranges of average, lowest, and highest salaries paid to selected personnel by the reporting school systems. Three of these tables compare l987-88 data with those reported for 1986-87. One table shows the number of responding school systems employing personnel in each position category and the total number of personnel reported. Summary data are presented according to the enrollment size of the school system and the geographic region in which the school system is located. (MLF)
