School Management Salaries Study This detailed analysis includes salaries for each school management position , sorted into ranges , and detailed charts showing the percentage of salaries reported in each range . Also , included for each position is a salary summary with highest reported , mean and median salaries . Find it on PSBA . org
The following data are presented as a follow-up to PSBA ’ s analysis of average annual salaries reported to the Pennsylvania Department of Education .
Average salaries reported in the annual review are intended to provide compensation benchmarks , and they also serve to give quick reference to trends in salary administration .
However , averages being what they are - just averages - it is recognized that many factors influence this type of reporting . The continual shifting of professional positions has tended to distort the relationship of averages during the past few years .
Needless to say , management salary practices need a more careful review of other considerations if adequate attention is to be given to this area of discussion . The following charts offer this additional review and include an expanded number of management positions .
Please note that the number of positions in each chart does not necessarily represent the total number of positions for that title . The charts do represent the number of positions for which valid data could be obtained .
