Highland Park's Stinking Rich Teachers: 2011 HS Teachers Salaries


(Ed. Note: Since the initial publication of this article new salary figures have been released and posted on 9/8/12. These are the latest available and readers of the 2010 list will note that they all got nice pay hikes, despite the economic crisis.)

Posted below is the complete 2010 list of teachers names and salaries for Highland Park High School and Deerfield High School in District 113.

It could be of more than passing interest to the people of those North suburban Chicago hamlets, because their education establishment is pleading poverty and wants them to pony up more in taxes.

On April 5th, voters in Highland Park, Deerfield and Highwood will be asked to approve a referendum that would hike their taxes to pay $133 million more for the High Schools. After interest on the bonds that it wants to float, taxpayers would be stuck with an actual tab of $200 million.

The education establishment claims that it sorely needs the dough to patch up roofs and build athletic running tracks. But it might have thought of those things when it committed to teachers salaries that are positively among the most opulent in the nation.

Here are some highlights of the fat salaries paid to Highland Park and Deerfield High School personnel:

--- An army of 15 "Guidance Counselors" pulling down between $100k and $174k, with the average at $134k

--- A $147k drivers Ed teacher

--- 5 psychologists hauling in between $101 and $139k

--- $148k for a sex ed. teacher

--- 14 gym teachers each pulling down between $109 and $170k

--- 12 people called "Learning behavior specialists" pulling down between $102 and $140k

--- 2 six-figure social workers

--- Three drama coaches pulling down more than $100k including one at $171k (Did HP HS snare Sir Laurence Olivier?
)

The complete list of salaries is posted below in alphabetical order. These are, in almost all cases salaries for 10 months of work and come with gold plated health benefits and uniquely generous retirement plans.


For a detailed speadsheet, go to the Family Taxpayers Foundation site. That is the group that filed the Freedom of Information lawsuit to secure public release of this data from the ISBE.
