Certificated Personnel and Related Information Fall 1995 (Revised).
Information used to prepare this publication about certificated school personnel in Colorado was gathered from the state's public schools and Boards of Cooperative Services during fall 1995. Tables describe teacher salaries and characteristics, including educational background and ethnicity. The fall 1995 average salary for Colorado's 35,387.9 full-time equivalent (FTE) public school teachers was $35,364, which represented a 2.3% increase over the fall 1994 average salary. The average salary for Colorado teachers has been below the national average since fall 1988. Of the 67,500.7 FTE certificated and noncertificated staff, 52.4% were classroom teachers. The number of teachers increased 1.4% over 1994, while the number of students increased 2.5% in the same period. From 1989 to 1995, as student membership increased by 16.6%, the number of FTE classroom teachers increased only 10.7%. Some 72.3% of Colorado's teachers were female, and 43.8% of principals and assistant principals were female. Only 16.6% of the state's superintendents and assistant superintendents were female. American Indians, Asians, Blacks, and Hispanics together represented 9.0% of the state's teachers. Just over 65% of the state's teachers were 40 years of age or older. From 1985 to 1995, the number of teachers under 40 years of age declined by 15.1% while the number of teachers aged over 40 increased by 50.8%. (Contains 3 illustrations and 12 tables.) (SLD)
