Williams, Alicia R.; Cooke, Willa D.; Davis, Andrea M.; Miller, Oronde A.; Lewis, JoAnn
This annual survey reports comparable salary data for 22 professional positions. The purpose of this edition is to aid in the analysis of trends in average salaries and wages paid public-school employees in the six component groups of school personnel over the previous 10 years. This report shows how the Composite Indicator of Changes (CIC) in average salaries and wages paid by public-school systems is compiled and how local school systems can compile CIC data for use in making salary and wage decisions. The CIC is computed from data for 28 of the 32 professional and support positions reported by school systems that respond to the annual National Survey of Salaries and Wages in Public Schools. A section is also included on the Consumer Price Index, telling how this economic index can be compared with the CIC. In order to maintain consistency in the purchasing power of public-school employees, school boards and administrators should be aware of both the short-range and long-range relationships between changes in salaries and changes in the Consumer Price Index. Appended are a worksheet for compiling local school system CIC data, and bar graphs for plotting comparative CIC data. (Author/WFA)
