Some Illinois public school teachers earning six-figure salaries - Courier News

 

As teachers’ salaries face national scrutiny and calls for pay tied to student performance, a Chicago Sun-Times analysis of educator earnings, based on total compensation last school year, found that public school teachers who make at least $100,000 like those in District 113 are the exception rather than the rule in Illinois.

Statewide, 11.25 percent of high school teachers and 2.26 percent of elementary-grade teachers hit that mark. Statewide, the average elementary teacher made $61,140 — including all benefits, summer school pay, after-school stipends and retirement payouts. The average high school teacher took home $69,366.

In Chicago, where the typical teacher stands at the head of a classroom comprised of 87 percent low-income kids, a six-figure pulldown was rarer still. Just over 1 percent of Chicago public elementary and high school teachers hit that mark.

McHenry County College land acquisition headed to court — Crystal Lake news, photos and events — TribLocal.com

 

The community college made a $750,000 offer for land at 9010 Route 14 owned by GHM Trust in late April. The trust rejected that deal and made a counter offer of $1.5 million, a price Smith said was too steep considering two independent appraisals put the land at $700,000 and $750,000, respectively.

Harding Real Estate has the property listed on its website for $3.1 million. The flat, agricultural land has

A District 100 Teacher’s letter of concern

The following is taken from this Friday’s Boone County Journal which is available free of charge at merchants across the county and on-line at:  http://boonecountyjournal.com/news/2011/Boone-County-News-05-27-11.pdf#page=5

The same letter was also printed in the Belvidere Daily Republican and available at:  http://www.belvideredailyrepublican.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=6598:to-the-taxpayers-of-belvidere-school-district-100&catid=104:letters-to-the-editor&Itemid=497

To the taxpayers of Belvidere School District 100,

As I reflect on my 31 years of teaching in this district, there are some changes happening now that deeply concern me. Belvidere School District 100 has always done more with less. By this I mean we have always had the lowest tax rates around (just check your local real estate listings that advertise that fact), yet our schools and the students in them do well. This success is a reflection of the fact that all stakeholders, parents, administrators, school board, teachers, and community leaders, have been part of the decision making process.

In the last year or two, teacher input is no longer sought and, at times, is even discouraged. Decisions such as elementary reading programs, the Washington STEM Academy, and decisions about how interventions will be incorporated into the school day are made without teacher input. Why should we be consulted? We are the professionals in your child's classroom. We all have at least a bachelor's degree in teaching and the majority of us have a master's degree. We are the people with the experience and training as well as the people who will deliver these programs to the students in our classrooms.

Instead of being consulted, elementary teachers were given parts of the new reading series and their old reading materials were taken away even though they were not given all materials needed for the new series. These elementary teachers are told exactly how to teach and how long to teach each part of the reading program. Teacher discretion and teachable moments are a thing of the past. Subjects like social studies and science are greatly reduced or eliminated in favor of teaching reading and math which are tested on the ISATs, the state high stakes test by which we are judged. This idea of reducing science and social studies almost made it into the middle school level this year and could come up again if we don't pay attention to what is going on in our schools. Why would science and social studies classes be reduced? We need to remediate students who are not meeting the standards on the ISAT tests and since science is only tested in third and seventh grade and social studies is never tested, these subjects are seen as dispensable. As a middle school science teacher, the lack of science instruction in the elementary grades is noticeable and would be more so if we cut back on science in the middle school. I especially found it distressing that all sixth graders were going to have science and social studies time cut in half even if they met the standards on the ISATs and did not need interventions. This idea has been put on the back shelf for now but only your vigilance will keep it there.

The Washington STEM Academy is another quick fix suddenly brought up and approved in one weekend. The academy in and of itself is probably a good idea but it needs thorough planning to be sucessful not a “leap of faith” that depends on young teachers being put in new positions. When all first through fourth year teachers were non-renewed, they were told most would get hired back but staffing needs for all buildings, especially the new academy, needed to be determined first. Since hiring for the academy was done first, these young teachers who wanted a job applied and were hired instead of the more experienced teachers with good past evaluations who were already there. These more experienced, tenured teachers are being placed elsewhere in the district but as anyone in teaching can tell you, it takes time for teachers to be their best in a new assignment. The apple cart has been upset, and it did not need to be. If these upsetting conditions result in our scores getting worse instead of better, let the people in charge know of your displeasure.

Actually, my main purpose behind writing this letter is to encourage you, the taxpayers and parents, to stay involved in this school district. Go to board meetings and talk to the board members you have elected. There are many other issues that need to be decided, and you are the ones with the real power. Recently, the board wanted to approve a calendar with a very early start date but community members from the fair board pointed out how starting before fair week was over would not be a good idea for this community. The board listened. The budget is being prepared now. What will be cut? Shall advanced placement classes only be offered by project running start or can we continue to have our own honors classes? All social workers were let go. How many will be hired back and who will fulfill their duties? How will interventions be instituted? Will all students lose classes? Will there be after school programs for the students to get caught up? Please stay involved because you are the ones ultimately in control of the school district.
