by Bobby Stephens Willard Crouthamel ( x-233) Power Point Presentation #1 of 3 BRIEF DESCRIPTION
What is being surveyed? Who are the participants? Why has this been undertaken?
A 28 Year Endeavor Evolved based on ideas and requests from over 500 school system HR & Finance contacts
By clicking on the I icon box whenever it appears at the bottom of a slide, there will be additional dialog related to the content of the slide…either information clarification or an example related to that slide.
The yearly Teacher Survey report is produced during the Summer, followed by the Non-Teaching Jobs report in the Fall-Winter, and finally the Extracurricular Activities Supplements report immediately after the New Year (January). Reports are in PDF format via . The Non- Teaching report consists of three parts: separate files for Large, Medium, and Small sized school systems.
Past participation has occurred solely by word-of-mouth; school systems have never been solicited by advertisement. This is the 28 th year of the initiative and hundreds of HR and Finance staff have contributed advice and guidance.
Salaries being paid at: T-Levels, Years of Experience Levels. Furlough and Reduction Day Information Maximum and Minimum supplements reported for each of 73 activities
Just to have salaries on hand to reference is a good reason by itself. Keep abreast of what other school systems are doing. Defend whether salaries are high or low (an even-handed view). Justify assigned value of a particular job. Identify the need for further review of salaries. Underpin your districts setting of salaries.
Salary Survey Rational Comparisons with other school systems to see if we are in line with their salaries. Opportunity to compare: Urban, Metro, Rural System size…large, medium, small Vicinity or RESA area North, Middle, or South Georgia
The next series of slides describe the Teacher Salary Survey process and report (with samples of the various types of salary figure comparisons).
Teacher salaries paid comparisons T4, T5, T6, T7 Levels (certificate levels) Years of Experience Steps (E to 30) Comparisons by: RESA area, system size (Large, Medium, Small), like-systems, and to numerous group averages and state/regional averages Salaries ranked by school system (highest paying at various Certificate and Experience levels)
Compare your system with: Another system, Another system, Various group averages Various group averages State Minimums and averages for All Systems State Minimums and averages for All Systems
School systems ranked by salary paid This table also displays a comparison of local supplements
Are your salaries appropriate and in line with other districts? Are they competitive at various levels (T and Step Levels)? Do you need to look at supplements, longevity steps, maximum salaries reached?
Furlough or Reduction Days Furlough day pay was subtracted from the schedules of systems not producing a reduction-day schedule and having furlough days. Information is presented on the number of furlough or reduced days the various systems have identified. Means are circled.
The next series of slides describe the Non-Teaching Personnel Salary Survey data collection process and report (with samples of the various types of salary figure comparisons) and describing the effort made to obtain accurate salary information).
Non-Teaching Personnel Positions Certificated, Classified, plus Stipends) High potential salary comparisons (top pay, plus other information…days worked, job titles & anomalies, etc.) 48 positions (small school districts), 82 positions (medium-size school districts), 124 positions (large school districts). 53 school systems from: Metro RESA, Griffin RESA, Northeast GA RESA, First District RESA and numerous other GA systems (North, Middle, and South GA).
Number of Jobs Large Systems – 124 Large Systems – 124 Medium Systems – 82 Medium Systems – 82 Small Systems - 49 Small Systems - 49 Jobs are presented first by: (a) System- wide workers (Central Office, Department Staff, and other system coverage) and (b) Local school building positions. Each of the jobs listed on this slide has an accompanying definition which has been derived by looking at work typical to that job…usually from organizational charts and system job descriptions, but also relevant to the school systems size.
Highest Potential Salary Highest pay with maximum experience & degree Salary figures should be reported as the highest potential salary a job holder might make this year. That is, the Top end of highest scale, say Doctorate Level, with maximum experience and degree or training, not just current top pay. The Chief Technology Officer, in this example, has a high potential salary of $102,241 and is not required to have certification. This school system has a title of Director of Information/Instructional Technology.
Sample County Schools In this example, the sample county has the assistant superintendent position having a maximum potential salary of $102,241. It calls for a certified based individual to work for 230 days (which we consider an annual job) and that person is a division or department director…which was not specified. No additional comments were provided.

RESA and other group averages are contained at the bottom of each table. The Minimum Average includes salaries that were determined to be a flat fee.

Crafted over a 28 year period by over 500 participants (including Human Resources and/or Finance Directors and HR Specialists across Georgia)…data collection by Metro RESA. 53 School Systems currently participating (18 large, 20 medium, 17 small)…representing 71% of the public school students in Georgia. Compare our district with others to see if we are out of line with them. Job comparisons across like-school systems: system size, area of state, Rural/Urban, etc. Expertise provided by well known HR officials and persons with lengthy experience in conducting compensation studies, and plus RESA directors and school superintendents. Done on a yearly basis, singling out only Georgia school systems. Cost-efficient process (access to an appropriate data-base using annually updated information). Information to help set salaries that are: comprehensive, fair and understandable (eliminating negative reasons such as: we dont know how our schedule was determined or it was done in the past…we cannot alter it.
