South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Office of Research.
Tabulated data on salaries of elementary school and secondary school teachers are reported for South Carolina for the 1990-91 school year. Salary schedules are presented for the state as a whole, the 91 geographic school districts, and two special school districts: Palmetto Unified School District, and South Carolina Department of Youth Services. The ranks of salary schedule values and the average salary values are displayed only for the 91 geographic school districts. The Palmetto Unified School District and South Carolina Department of Youth Services were excluded in the rankings since teachers in these districts are employed for 235 days. Data are shown by teacher's degree level and years of experience, with data on differences from the previous year. Summary data are shown for each school district for combined average salaries of teachers, librarians, and guidance counselors. School district rankings are provided. The 1990-91 State Minimum Salary Schedule (SMSS) represents an increase of about 3.2% above the 1989-90 SMSS. Eighty-one school districts pay a beginning teacher a higher salary (from 0.1% to 12.25% higher) than required by the 1990-91 SMSS. Ten school districts pay teachers according to the 1990-91 SMSS. The 1990-91 etimated average salary is $28,174, a 3.5% increase over that for 1989. (TJH)
