The Main Point is how to determine what is "Fair" compensation for Teachers and Superintendents. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- But what really caught my eye was how little difference there was in pay in relation to the difficulty of the job: For example: In 2011- 2012 Superintendent Farley's salary (not including pensions and benefits was $275,000. TO run CUSD he oversees a District that has 2033 teachers and 50,000 students.

Compare that to Los Angeles Unified School District. Their Superintendent is paid $275,000 to oversee 27,208 teachers and 640,000 students.

Compare that to Fountain Valley Elementary School District. Their Superintendent is paid $265,773 to oversee 259 teachers and 6,315 students.

If you say that CUSD's Superintendent Farley is paid adequately at $275,000. Then one would have to conclude that the Superintendent at Fountain Valley is grossly overpaid while the Superintendent at LAUSD is grossly underpaid.

How should taxpayers determine what is fair and adequate pay for teachers and Superintendents?
Dawn Urbanek October 03, 2013 at 08:54 PM
What I have continually heard regarding pay scales for public employees is that the pay they request is based on the pay of neighboring Citys, Counties, Districts etc. So CUSD teachers want to be paid like Laguna Beach Teachers which I understand- but CUSD does not get the revenue that Laguna Beach does so should they be paid at a salary that is equivalent District? The discussion about "adequate compensation" needs to include a discussion about revenues and what you can afford not just be an automatic "I get an automatic raise every year and should make as much as someone else" It must also consider what the District can actually afford.

Compare: The average teachers salary in the state of California last year was $68,531. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- the average CUSD teachers salary was $80,105. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The average teacher salary in Laguna Beach last year $93,450 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The average teacher salary in Saddleback Valley is $74, 095

Shelly Stated: " Please figure in the cost of living in each area in CA please. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Cost of Living in these three Districts is pretty similar.
